Airline procurement decision-makers are, for the first time, being hosted at next year’s MRO Middle East, the third edition of the maintenance, repair and overhaul conference and exhibition, produced by F&E Aerospace and Aviation Week.
Running from 1 to 2 February 2011 at Dubai’s Airport Expo, MRO Middle East will bring together top industry professionals from across the globe for a conference to discuss new technologies, new processes and asset management strategies.
The accompanying exhibition will see the return of 200 established companies such as Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT), Boeing, Lufthansa Technik, Goodrich, Pratt & Whitney, and Rockwell Collins.
Keynote speakers include Adel Ali, CEO of Air Arabia, Ken Gile, COO of flydubai, Iain Lachlan, Divisional SVP Engineering of Emirate Airline, and Abdulla Shadid, Senior Business Development Manager Aerospace of Mubadala.
Most of the airlines across the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region will be represented by key executives who hold decision-making responsibility for procurement and purchasing of maintenance, overhaul or engineering equipment and services.
Through the Hosted Buyers programmed, several of the key executives will be accommodated at five-star hotels and attend pre-scheduled meetings with exhibitors throughout the two days of the show, in addition to show networking events in the evenings.
, Event Director at F&E Aerospace, said: “MRO Middle East, in its third running, is now firmly established on the region’s calendar of aerospace events. The Hosted Buyers programmed has had proven success at our other events, giving exhibitors direct access to representatives of their target market. We look forward to providing a similarly worthwhile experience to our exhibitors at MRO Middle East.”
