MEBAA’s last conference was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in April 2014. The association’s next event will be held in Amman, Jordan on 14 October 2014.
Ali Al Naqbi, founding chairman of MEBAA, said: “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,” Al Naqbi added.
Jordan began operating business aviation in the 1970s 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 centre for the region. The country is still a leader in business aviation in the region.
