Travel catering expo joins Dubai airshow
Dubai, June 28, 2009
The International Travel Catering Exhibition (ITCA) Dubai has announced that their flagship Middle East travel catering exhibition will be held during the Dubai Airshow from November 16 to 18.
Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), organiser of the event confirmed the dates were made available in light of the new hall construction at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Trixee Loh, senior vice president at DWTC, said, “In challenging times it is enormously beneficial when organisers take the opportunity to come together to present attendees and visitors with an even greater value proposition and more compelling reasons to attend industry events.”
The exhibition is held alongside the region's only dedicated conference, ITCA Middle East Conference, which attracts many industry decision makers from across the region.
Terry Coyle, permanent senior board member of the ITCA endorsed the move calling it 'a fantastic news.'
'Whilst prospects for the Middle East airline industry are better than most, the industry still has to cut it’s cloth to match the current economic reality. This move is sound housekeeping and allows our delegates to take part in a much bigger industry gathering,” he quipped.
Now in its fourth year, ITCA Dubai has rapidly expanded in recent years to bring together the entire travel catering market representing Airline, Cruise, Ferry, and Railway Hospitality industries from across the Middle East, Africa and Indian Subcontinent.
