The second edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco, taking place at its new location in Marrakech Menara Airport from 12-13 September, is solidifying its reputation as the place to be for business aviation in the region, with more high profile exhibitors committing to the event.

Africa is forecast to receive 200 aircraft deliveries valued at $7 billion over the next ten years, with over 80% of these predicted to be in the light or medium categories, according to the Bombardier Business Aircraft, Market Forecast: 2016 – 2025.

As the first business aviation show in North Africa, the MEBAA Show Morocco is ideally placed to offer exhibitors an opportunity to be part of the region’s industry growth.”
