Each technical session throughout the three-day event will include comprehensive presentations and lectures, as well as moderated public forums to allow the attendees to directly ask questions to the lecturers and speakers. The show will also enable networking opportunities among participants to help facilitate new partnerships and create new leads.
The physical aspect of the show will be held at the Emirates Flight Training Academy with existing precautionary measures to be strictly observed, while the virtual platform will provide online attendees with a 360-degree view of the different areas of the venue such as the main lobby, the exhibition hall and the auditorium. A virtual networking area will be designated as well for the benefit of the remote participants.
Tahnoon Saif, Chief Executive Officer of Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub, Dubai South said: “We are living in an unprecedented time, and as is the case with other sectors, the helicopter industry is facing new challenges as well. However, fresh opportunities have emerged, motivating us to seek new and innovative ways to optimise various areas that would allow us to move the industry forward. Choosing the Emirates Flight Training Academy as the new venue for Dubai HeliShow in 2021 reflects this commitment and enables the exhibition to continuously serve as an ideal platform for stakeholders across the globe to explore expansion prospects and share best industry practices.”
Ahmad Abulhoul, Managing Director of Domus Group, said: “This development was the latest change to be made concerning the show in light of the new direction and strategy that we are undertaking to maintain the exhibition’s global reach and influence, as well as respond to the industry’s current needs. Besides its new venue, for the first time in the history of Dubai HeliShow, it will also be staged under the new hybrid format — combining both physical and 3D virtual platforms to provide its international audience with a convenient, contemporary and flexible way to effectively engage with the world markets. It is also the first time that such an exhibition structure will be implemented across the Middle East. As the show’s new home, the Emirates Flight Training Academy is well-equipped to support this innovative set-up and ensure its implementation without encountering any major issue.”
