Dubai: The 18th edition of the Dubai Airshow will take place at Dubai World Central (DWC) from November 13 to 17, 2023. The event’s central theme will revolve around space exploration, highlighting its role in the growth of individual nations and the aerospace industry.
Dubai Airshow and the UAE Space Agency are collaborating to enhance the event’s focus on space following a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two parties.
Mr. Ibrahim Al Qasim, Deputy Director-General of the UAE Space Agency, and Mr. Salem Humaid Al Marri, Director-General of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC), will assume duties as part of the Dubai Airshow Advisory Board.
Dr. Gustavo Dos Santos, Chief Researcher, Propulsion and Space Research Centre (PSRC) at the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), commented that “the airshow is a unique forum that brings together the world’s leading stakeholders in the aerospace and space sectors. With a complete section dedicated to space in the upcoming edition, we hope to add value through our participation in conferences that discuss the correlation between aerospace and climate change.”
The airshow will host a dedicated two-day conference program, gathering high-profile leaders, government officials, and change-makers who will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to push the boundaries of possibilities in space.
Furthermore, the event will offer a host of networking opportunities through its Exclusive Ministerial and Space Delegation programs, connecting industry players with government officials, academia, and decision-makers.
