MEBAA statement in full :
It is with deep regret that I am writing to inform you that we have taken the decision to postpone the MEBAA Show to 22 February until 24 February 2021 due to increased concerns related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 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 you, our exhibitors and other stakeholders, we believe the decision to postpone the event is in the best interests of the health and safety of all exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff.
We understand this news will be extremely disappointing to the business aviation community; however, we believe that in postponing the show to February 2021, we will be better positioned to deliver a quality event for everyone.
The event will as usual, showcase the latest technologies, insights and business opportunities shaping the future of business aviation in the Middle East and across the globe, but we are also working very hard on a number of new initiatives that we hope will add value to your participation at the MEBAA Show in 2021. These include access to hours of new 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.
In the meantime, if you have any questions relating to the postponement of the show, please do not hesitate to reach out to either me or my team. I look forward to welcoming the business aviation community to Dubai in February - by working together we will ensure our industry’s recovery is stronger!
