Dubai Airport Show, May 11th to 13th, 2014: a key step in the approach strategy to the Middle-Eastern airport market -

Miryem Oukas Messidi - 07-avr.-2014 09:28:54

For the 5th year running, a French Pavilion will showcase French technology and innovations at the Dubai Airport Show. This tradeshow is a major event for any businesses intending to take part in the tremendous boom happening in the middle-Eastern airport market. Gathered inside a 102-m² national pavilion organised by UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development, French exhibitors will introduce their diverse, innovative products and know-how to buyers from the entire Middle East area, as well as from other countries like India, Iran, Pakistan, Tunisia and Turkey. The Middle East area is poised for a 5.2% annual increase in air traffic by 2030. Investments of the order of USD 100b are expected by 2020 for the entire range of airport projects (building, extensions and modernisation). With 400 million passengers expected in the region’s airports by 2020, countries in the Middle East have set up massive investment programmes, especially in airport infrastructures and passenger handling. Clearly, the goal here is to become the world’s leading hub. These projects are creating unprecedented market opportunities for local and regional companies, as well as for foreign companies. French exhibitors, who are widely acknowledged for their unquestionable expertise and know-how in the full range of airport services, are therefore intent on positioning themselves. Their attendance at Dubai’s Airport Show is an excellent platform for presenting their products and for meeting with the 80 airport sector decision-makers expected at the   Global Airport Leaders Forum being held in parallel with the tradeshow. The companies exhibiting at the French Pavilion are a good representation of the sector’s diversity and of French excellence. This is demonstrated by the sheer breadth of the extensive, innovative range of equipment provided by GATE GSE (passenger transport vehicles, freight transport vehicles, service vehicles), by AERSCOPE/SOMINEX (telescopic passageways and adaptable motorised canopies) or by MILOCO GSE INTERNATIONAL (airport trailers). DESCHAMPS/MOBI-MAT presents its suitable aircraft recovery systems, while EXPAIRSYSTEM CLESTRA provides smoking lounges for airports, where the air inside is as healthy as it is outside and where there is no hazard from second-hand smoke. The event will also feature ALTIA KDI STRASBOURG, the leading manufacturer of Caddie luggage carts, and DELTA BOX, a specialist in runway lights (windsocks, composite beacons). As for ground support equipment, it is represented by USIMAT SERMEES (a wide range of towable products) and CARTEL MANUTENTION (handling equipment, trolleys). Last but not least, REEL provides aircraft maintenance docking systems. Please do not hesitate to come and check out France’s products and technology at booths 6250/6150 in Hall 6!
