The exhibitors got good business leads that may soon turn into agreements,” – Daniyal Qureshi, Group Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Middle East;
- “It is quite an interesting time for the aviation sector. The global situation is improving slowly but Middle Eastern countries are showing eagerness to get ready for the future.
