The Middle East aerospace market is transitioning from buyer to service and systems provider, and this increasing diversification creates new and expanding opportunities for the global aerospace supply chain.

This year's attendees can expect to gain a better understanding of those opportunities, as well as understand how to access and conduct business locally. Aviation markets addressed by the speakers during the conference proceedings will include Commercial, Business, and Defense. The conference itself will be valuable for large/small industry participants alike. Some of the benefits include:

  • Trends in Middle Eastern aerospace and policies
  • Access new supply chain partners
  • Current small aerospace business - Access to large aerospace companies
  • Government - Interact with industry and learn about new opportunities for WA businesses
