The tenth Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME) is coming back to the Dubai World Trade Centre on February 11 and 12, and organizers have already released a few sneak peeks as to what can be expected at the event.

In an August 6 press release, AIME noted that research company Markets and Markets predicts the aircraft cabin interiors industry will grow globally from $26.02 billion in 2017 to $38.85 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 8.35%, as evidenced by investments from Middle East airlines.

Dirk Gundermann, Area Sales Manager, Rudolf Wulfmeyer Aircraft Interior Gmbh, told AIME about his company's decision to participate in the 2019 edition. “We attended AIME 2017 as visitors and decided to exhibit in 2018," he said in a statement. "We have a lot of customers in the Middle East and it is good to meet them and stay in contact with them, so it is important for us to exhibit here.”

Other confirmed exhibitors include Kets Tekstil, Acro Aircraft Seating and Cooper Standard

"We are really pleased with the plans for the tenth edition of AIME, and thrilled to see so many returning exhibitors from previous years,” said Caryn McConnachie, Aerospace Director of show organizers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East, in the press release. “With the current and future levels of fleet investment in the region, the show is the place to be for aircraft interior suppliers of all types.”

The Inflight Middle East Pavilion, in partnership with HMG Aerospace, will also be featured again this year, along with the sixth annual Inflight Workshop and Awards.
