The Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) has announced that the region’s business aviation platform, the MEBAA Show, has been postponed and 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.
MEBAA is a non-profit official group that represents the aviation business in the middle East and North Africa region.
MEBAA seeks to implement operational safety and efficiency by providing best in-practice workshops/training, conferences, shows, and by establishing codes of conduct and providing industry data.
