The reputation of the business aviation industry in the MENA region continues to grow, with the MEBAA Show remaining the forefront of the boom in 2018. Illustrated by the commitment of new exhibitors from around the world, the show continues to grow with 500 exhibitors expected at the 2018 edition from around the world.
Among those exhibiting for the first time are companies from the UAE, such as Success Aviation and ENOC Aviation, plus some regional ones including Leading Brothers from Saudi Arabia. In addition, many companies from further around the globe have committed to exhibit at the MEBAA Show 2018, with Nomad Aviation from Switzerland and Signature Plating from the USA among those travelling to Dubai in December for the three day event.

Additional newcomer ENOC Aviation, the specialized aviation fuels division of ENOC, will be showcasing its aviation fuel integrated supply chain offerings and range of commercial services.

Today, we supply in excess of three million USG’s of jet fuel daily and remain committed to support the country’s ambitions of being the region’s key aviation hub,” said Burhan Al Hashemi, Managing Director, ENOC Marketing. He continued, “With a strong presence in 150 airports across 24 countries, we plan to continue identifying growth opportunities to further expand our presence across international markets, and that is why we feel exhibitions such as the MEBAA Show are an ideal platform to meet with industry experts and shed light on the latest trends in the business aviation sector.”
