Posted 10 April 2017 · Add Comment

The MEBAA Show Morocco will offer an increased scope to exhibitors in terms of space and tent options when it moves to its new location at Marrakech Menara Airport in September.

Recently, the first meeting of the event’s key stakeholders took place in Morocco, with Ali Alnaqbi, founding & executive chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA), representatives of both show organisers F&E Aerospace and the Office National Des Aéroports (ONDA) discussing the plans and opportunities for this year’s event.

“The kick off stakeholder meeting for the MEBAA Show Morocco went wonderfully well,” Alnaqbi confirmed. “We are pleased with the progress made and the possibilities for the MEBAA Show Morocco. The new site at Marrakech Menara Airport offers plenty of space that will allow exhibitors to maximise their exposure and make the most of the networking opportunities available.

Many exhibitors have already committed to this year’s event, with companies such as Jetex, Seaprime and XJet joining sponsors Gulfstream on the site. 

Foreign direct investment in Morocco came to $4 billion in 2015, and aerospace in Morocco in particular has been growing by more than 10% per year. Recently, GDC Technics announced that it had selected Marrakech as an African base for its MRO and modification services.

“We are pleased to welcome the MEBAA Show Morocco, the only business aviation show in North Africa, to Marrakech in September,” said Zouhair Mohamed El Aoufir, CEO of Moroccan Airports Authority. “With the growth and opportunities for business aviation in Morocco, we expect to see an increase in interest from across the region and beyond, and are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to aerospace companies to be part of it.”
