The announcement that the only business aviation show in Morocco, MEBAA Show Morocco, will return in 2019 has been given full support from the country’s government.

Taking place at Marrakech Menara Airport from 17-18 September 2019, the third edition of the MEBAA Show Morocco will bring the global aviation industry to this growing market.

The Moroccan government has identified the growth potential in the aerospace and business aviation industries and has focused on creating an attractive environment for manufacturers to establish themselves in for several years now. Morocco’s 2020 aerospace goals include bringing in 100 new investors, creating 23,000 new jobs and generating $1.6 billion in new revenue.

In addition, the number of business aircraft movements in the MENA region is predicted to reach 175,000 by 2020, while the number of registered aircraft is expected to increase to 1200.

“We are thrilled to see the MEBAA Show Morocco return in 2019,” said HE Mr. Mohammed Sajid, Minister of Tourism, Air Transport, Crafts and Social Economy. “Morocco is a high traffic market for both business and leisure private aviation travel, which forms an integral part of our growing aerospace industry. The MEBAA Show Morocco plays an important part in giving the industry access to these opportunities and we look forward to welcoming the show again in 2019.”

Ali Alnaqbi, Founding & Executive Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), is equally enthusiastic about the show’s return. “The feedback we received from both the government and our exhibitors on previous editions of the show has been fantastic,” he said. “MEBAA is looking forward to bringing the show back to 2019 for its third edition, as the business aviation industry continues to grow in Morocco.”
