The Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association announced that the region’s leading business aviation platform, the MEBAA Show, will now take place from 22 February until 24 February 2021 at DWC, Airshow Site. The event was due to take place from 08-10 December 2020 but has been postponed due to concerns related to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak.

Ali Alnaqbi, Founding and Executive Chairman of MEBAA said: “We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 spread over the past few weeks as well as developments on travel restrictions from governments around the world.  After very careful consideration of the situation and taking into account invaluable feedback from our exhibitors and stakeholders we believe the decision to postpone the event is in the best interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff.”

“We understand this news will be disappointing to the business aviation industry; however, we believe that in postponing the show to February 2021 we will be better positioned to deliver a quality event for everyone,” added Alnaqbi. 

By attending The MEBAA Show, organizations will have the chance to meet business aircraft manufacturers, avionics firms, completion centers, charter companies and aircraft resellers who will display their latest products and services. 

The MEBAA Show’s upcoming edition will host several new and exciting features including access to hours of content through thought-leadership seminars and workshops along with a pre-arranged meetings program to facilitate connection and networking between visitors and exhibitors. In addition, the brand new Luxury Travel Operators Segment will allow attendees to meet and network with regional and global high-end travel operators.
