In a bid to unite the region’s business aviation industry around its common challenges and trends, MEBAA – Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association will host the next installment of the MEBAA Conference at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman, Jordan on Monday 14 October 2014. The MEBAA conference was initially planned for Tunisia in September, but has been postponed until next year.
Following the success of the last MEBAA Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in April; MEBAA will once again draw upon its members and other prominent stakeholders across the region’s aviation sector to deliberate and discuss the issues pertaining to the Middle East and North Africa’s business aviation market.
In the seventies, Jordan introduced business aviation into the Middle East when the first operator in the region began flying with support of the late King Hussein who was keen to make Amman a business aviation center for the region. Today, Jordan is continuing that legacy and is equally pioneering thanks to a knowledge-based economy which is fuelling a terrific entrepreneurial spirit. Since Jordan adopted an open-skies policy, the country’s aviation sector has developed dramatically and the support network for business aviation operators is now well established.
MEBAA’s Founding Chairman, Ali Al Naqbi expressed his delight on the new location saying: “It is unfortunate we had to postpone our conference in Tunisia until next year, but with the many exciting developments in Jordan and its surrounding countries, I couldn’t be happier with our new venue and location. The ‘MEBAA Conference’ has now gained incredible traction – spreading from the far west of the region to the east of the region and everything in between.
Our association will continue to meet and bring inspired and motivated people together through conferences in different cities around the Middle East and North Africa every year; to ensure the business aviation community remains at the forefront of this ever changing industry.”
