Dubai Airshow to highlight future of aerospace

DubaiDubai Airshow, which returns next month, will be used by leading aerospace companies to launch and showcase their latest innovations. The aerospace industry is at an exciting point as new technologies open prospects for technological change that can turn into real savings and growth in costs. Many of the 1,300 exhibitors at the exhibition will be coming from all corners of the world from November 17 to 21 at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site, highlighting the Dubai Airshow’s international draw. S&K Technologies from the US and Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence from Italy will be among them, both of which will be exhibiting this year for the first time.


Returning industry giants, including Rolls Royce, Boeing and Lockheed Martin, will demonstrate their own technological advances across the entire aerospace industry. Rolls Royce aims to use its presence at the Dubai Airshow to highlight progress towards its IntelligentEngine vision, which, according to John Kelly, SVP Middle East, Africa & Central Asia, “is heading in the direction of a future in which our engines are increasingly linked, contextually aware and understanding and, as a result, smarter.”


He continues: “We will proudly showcase our engine technologies, and truly demonstrate the Power of Trent, alongside the technologies that are part of the IntelligentEngine vision, which we see as opening new opportunities to pioneer the way we provide power to customers.”


Bernard Dunn, Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey chairman, says: “Every nation in this region has clear ambitions committed to diversifying its economies, increasing its workforce, protecting its citizens, improving infrastructure, and more. Aerospace will continue to play a major role in the growth story of the area. In the Dubai Airshow, Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) will offer a detailed and interactive discussion on air traffic control in the UAE, the GCC and around the world. CAAs, ANSPs, Airlines, Airports and ATM suppliers should come together to learn more about how to apply technology to the growing problem of crowded skies.


It will also feature a space sector focus with an exhibition area and two dedicated conferences produced in partnership with the UAE Space Agency: Women in Space and Tech Talks. Such two conferences will create unprecedented opportunities to address space technologies within the broader aerospace settings by bringing together major decision-makers from space agencies and the commercial industry.
