Dubai Airshow 15-19 Nov 2009

The Dubai Airshow is held every two years and the last one was in 2007.This year the Dubai Airshow will be held on 15-19 November 2008.

The venue will be at Airport Expo Dubai which is conveniently located adjacent to Dubai International airport and about 15 minutes from the heart of the city. Airport Expo is a high-standard, modern venue and ideally located to offer maximum functionality and flexibility to exhibitors and visitors alike.

Organisers of the Dubai Airshow 2009 are enlarging the free exhibition space for the United Nation's World Food Programme .
In 2007 the Dubai Airshow set a precedent in corporate social responsibility by being the first exhibition to donate space to the WFP, which charters aircraft and sources logistical assistance from hundreds of contractors to deliver aid in times of disaster and crisis.

As a result of this high-profile exposure which gave WFP access to more than 850 exhibitors and 45,000 trade visitors from 131 countries, the UN humanitarian body recorded an increase in the number of air service providers used for aid programmes in 2008/9, which includes the current major aid schemes in Gaza.
