PODCAST 30: THE SHOWS MUST GO ON?

Will aerospace and defence shows continue or will virtual conferences take their place? That has been a big debate around an industry spending a lot of time at home.

 
This week we hear from Douglas Emslie, the chief executive of Tarsus, the owner of F&E in the UAE and the organiser of the Dubai Air Airshow.

He talks through the challenges facing events in the world but outlines his hopes for revival in the Middle East region.

Mark Brown, managing director of TIMES Aerospace also offers an optimistic view of African revival and the forthcoming Aviation Africa Summit and Exhibition to be held in Kigali, Rwanda 21-22 April 2021.

There is also a chance to hear the ‘inside story’ from defence editor Jon Lake, who gives his ‘from our correspondent’ insight about the current quandary facing the USA over potential export sales of the F-35 fighter aircraft to Gulf states.

This, plus all the news from the region including views of Muhamed Albakri, the regional vice president for IATA on the $30 billion aid for African airlines which has been locked in and therefore putting the African revival at risk.
