Airport authorities and contractors from more than 20 different countries will visit an upcoming airport show in Dubai aiming to place orders and to learn about new products and services offers, organisers said.
The 10th edition of Airport Show will run from April 25 to 27, 2010 at Airport Expo Dubai.
"Regional demand has been increasing significantly with more than Dh220 billion worth of airport-related projects estimated to be under way," said Mohamad Bader-Eddin, show Director, Reed Exhibitions, organisers of the show.
"At least 39 airports across the region are either under construction or undergoing modernisation," he added.
Bader-Eddin said the organisers expect to see the number of project buyers attending the event double over the previous year.
More than 80 purchasing decision makers and project leaders from live and current airport construction projects across the region are expected to attend.
A significant number have already confirmed their participation, including representatives from Doha International Airport in Qatar, Khartoum New International Airport in Sudan, Maharashtra Airport Development in India, Cairo Airport Company in Egypt, as well as Oslo Airport in Norway, Tan son Nhat International airport in Vietnam, and Cape Town International Airport in South Africa.
