Posted 20 June 2017 · Add Comment

Organisers of the Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) have announced that six major aerospace businesses have signed up to participate at the forthcoming show which takes place from 14 – 16 November 2018.

In a series of meetings held in the BIAS Chalet (No 190), Airbus Group, Bell Helicopters, Boeing, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin and Thales have all confirmed their continued support for the show.

Bahrain Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, His Excellency Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed who was at the show to meet with various aerospace businesses and host a business briefing at the Kallman USA Partnership Pavilion said, “The continued participation of these major players adds further weight to the growing importance of the Bahrain International Airshow.  These companies see the Gulf region as an important strategic location and the high-level meetings they are able to hold via our civil and military delegations programme make the show invaluable to them.”

These signings come in addition to other recent agreements at EBACE and IDEF with companies including Sky Prime Aviation, Otokar, Roketsan and Turkish Aerospace Industries meaning that chalet and exhibition space for the 2018 show is now 70% sold or reserved.

Amanda Stainer, commercial director for Farnborough International, co-organisers of the show said: “With the show still 18 months away, the commitments from these major international businesses are a testament to the strength of the show for both the commercial and military aerospace businesses. The show offers the business networking opportunities that people are looking for and this is evidenced by these signings.”
