From 07.11 to 08.11, the Saudi Airport Exhibition opened its doors for the first time in Riyadh for trade visitors from the airports. More than 100 exhibitors including 15 exhibitors from the Gate Association presented their innovative and new products. In a rapidly growing market on the Arabian Peninsula, the exhibition was a complete success. From Dubai to Oman, all of the region's leading airports were represented by top-class exhibitors. "The show was a complete success. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of visitors and were able to meet key decision makers." Peter Heuberger, COBUS Industries, also shares this impression. Especially the matchmaking program of the organizer provided high quality talks and a good first insight into the development of Saudi Arabia. Projects from new construction to overhaul are topics in Saudi Arabia and are being strongly promoted. "Participating in the first-ever Saudi Airport Expo was an experiment for us, but one we were happy to take a chance on as part of the GATE pavilion. Who dares wins, the first edition was a great success. The fair takes place where the projects will take place in the next few years and where there is great potential. It remains exciting to see how the SAE will develop in direct competition with the Dubai Airportshow." recaps Ingmar Krupp, Kusch & Co. We look forward to being part of the show again next year and actively shaping the development of the aviation industry in the Arab region.
