Saudi Arabia to launch new aviation event for the region

Saudi Arabia, July 2, 2018

Saudi Airshow, a new aerospace and aviation exhibition, will be hosted by Saudi Aviation Club in March 2019 in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

The show was officially announced in Riyadh on July 1 when Didier Mary, managing director of Adone Events, signed a protocol agreement to organise the show.

Under the patronage of HRH Prince Sultan Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, President of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, and Founder and Chairman of the Saudi Aviation Club, Adone Events will coordinate the exhibition to be held at Tumamah Airport in Riyadh on March 12, 13 and 14, 2019.

The event will be the first aviation and aerospace exhibition of its kind in Saudi Arabia, and will welcome exhibitors and delegates from across the world to Tumamah Airport which will be dedicated solely to the exhibition.

Saudi Airshow will host a mix of business, general, commercial aviation and aerospace exhibitors on a 100,000-sq-m static area which will accommodate more than 100 aircraft ranging in size from single-engine and executive jets to commercial wide-body aircraft. The show will offer chalets located next to the runway to enable manufacturers to present their entire range of aircraft and to facilitate demonstration flights. In addition, three exhibition halls will host more than 700 booths and international pavilions where exhibitors will showcase a full range of aviation and aerospace services and products. The format reflects the approach taken at Abu Dhabi Air Expo, African Airshow and France Air Expo, also organised by Adone Events.

“I am honoured that the Saudi Aviation Club has shown its confidence in Adone Events by agreeing to collaborate with us on this exciting new venture. Our experience, knowledge and network of aviation contacts is such that we can already confirm that more than 200 aviation companies have expressed strong interest in participating. The growth of aviation in Saudi Arabia reflects the need for this type of international exhibition and we are delighted to be involved,” said Didier Mary, general manager of Adone Events.
