Why the Dubai Airshow 2019?

Welcome to the future. 

“The UAE is leveraging its geographic location and proximity to international trading routes to play a central role in the global travel and aviation markets.”  


That observation from the U.S. International Trade Administration is backed up by big numbers. “According to the UAE Civil Aviation Authority, the country’s aviation sector alone is valued at $80 billion, employs over 250,000 direct hires and approximately 225,000 indirect jobs, and accounts for nearly 15 percent of the country’s GDP.”

Forecasts anticipating 200 million passengers a year by 2030 are at the center of monumental infrastructure projects anchored by the 145-square kilometer Dubai World Central Aerotropolis, promising to sustain spending in the commercial sector for years, even decades to come.

The UAE also ranks among the world’s top 15 military customers with a nearly $25 billion annual defense budget. With the launch of the new UAE Space Agency in 2014 and a vision to reach Mars in 2021 to coincide with the fledgling nation’s 50th anniversary, the UAE has established itself at the center of the 21st Century aerospace universe.

No wonder the Dubai Airshow has become a “must-attend” marketplace on the industry’s international trade event calendar. The UAE Space Pavilion, which debuted in 2015, has grown, and a display of cargo handling equipment reflects the region’s rapid growth as a freight hub (see details below).

Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

In its race to excellence in aerospace, the UAE’s “not-so-secret” weapon is the United States. 


As the largest customer for U.S. products and services in the Arab world, and a Top Five global market for U.S. aerospace exports, the UAE is building its big future with a wide scope of dedicated American trade and investment partners, innovative technologies and skilled professionals. In other words, you’re not only welcome at the Dubai Airshow, you’re expected.
