2017 hasn’t officially come to an end yet, but there’s already much anticipation for 2018 as it will be the banner year for the country’s biggest aviation show with the Kuwait Aviation Show to be held at the Kuwait International Airport from Jan 17 – 20, 2018.
The event acknowledges the increasing importance of the Arabian Gulf over the last two decades, especially since the GCC aviation industry has had one of the strongest performances among regional markets worldwide. Kuwait was chosen to play host to the event because its aviation market is projected to experience massive growth in the next 6 years that will see a number of airport construction projects as well as an expansion of the country’s air carrier market.
What to Look Forward to at the Kuwait Aviation Show 2018
Notable key projects include the construction and operation of three new airport terminals together with one of the country’s largest freight terminals among other things.
The Kuwait Aviation Show is expected to draw in massive local and international support due to the great interest the Kuwait aviation market has received in terms of private aircraft acquisitions and airplane leasing as well as the vast private and governmental opportunities presented by the country’s aviation market.
The Kuwait Aviation Show will host a number of activities and displays for different companies, organizations, and for all attendees of the event. Industry-related companies and related professionals will be accommodated at the indoor hangar to hold meetings and to exchange product ideas and services with colleagues. The outdoor plane display area will be the venue for the aircraft display event which will showcase over 30 aircraft units, both for commercial and military use from leading aircraft manufacturers in the world.
Moreover, the outdoor display area will host over 30 restaurant stalls and booths with various activities for all ages. Finally, there will also be a fantastic air show organized by Kuwait’s Ministry of Defense as well as other presentations by key sponsors and event organizers.
The 4-day event will start at 9 in the morning until late in the afternoon from Jan. 17 – 20, 2018. For more information, you can check out the event’s official website.
