Corporate Jet Investor Dubai 2023

3rd & 4th May 2023 | The Ritz-Carlton, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai

“CJI Dubai is the best event of the year in the Middle East”

Nasjet

Corporate Jet Investor Dubai is the market-leading conference for dealmakers and decision-makers concerned with developing and promoting business aviation in the Middle East and Africa. This year saw over 250 senior operators, aircraft managers, brokerages, financiers, OEMs, FBOs, MROs, appraisers, and other specialist consultants gather for two days of productive networking and knowledge exchange. 

CJI Dubai is now undoubtedly one of the leading events in the business aviation calendar. With a broad range of attendees from the sector, excellent panel discussions and plentiful networking opportunities, I would recommend it unreservedly.

 Duncan Aviation

With two cocktail receptions, The Dealmakers reception, and networking breakfasts, lunches, and refreshment breaks – there were plenty of opportunities to spend quality time with the other attendees in a relaxed setting.

Corporate Jet Investor Dubai was the perfect event to multiply and strengthen your relationships with other like-minded professionals in the region and enhance your market awareness. 

“This is one of the best, if not the best, conference we attend.”
