The Dubai Air Show is a biennial event that has been attracting visitors for the past 23 years. It began as the Arab Air Show back in 1986 and comprised a small civil aviation trade show at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Over two decades later, the show is a huge draw for all those involved and interested in the aerospace sector. The event focuses on connecting buyers to sellers from all over the globe. In 2016 the event drew over 66,346 trade visitors who connected with 1,103 exhibitors from 63 countries.
Although most visitors are from the Middle East, this trade show also pulls in international media from over a 1,296 different global outlets and an order book of US$37.2 billion. Remarkably, it is the fastest growing air show in the world - it offers access to a huge regional marketplace of decision makers and is a key event in the international aerospace calendar.
