Middle East Airport and Aviation Security Conference


With some of the world’s fastest growing airports and international airlines being located in the region, the Middle East is driving significant investments towards improving and enhancing airport and aviation security.

Significant growth in passenger numbers and the increase in the movement of air cargo has put pressure on regional governments to undertake massive projects for the upgrade of existing technologies and the development of new airports to cope with the demand.

With the shift in security threats in aviation, the demand for development of advanced security technologies and systems is growing substantially. The developing air travel industry and increasingly stringent regulatory requirements necessitate increase vigilance of airports by integrating smarter security solutions ensuring a seamless passenger experience.

It is against this dynamic background that Messe Frankfurt Middle East, organiser of the annual Intersec exhibition – the world’s leading trade fair for safety, security and fire protection, is launching the Middle East Airport and Aviation Security Conference (MEAASC) 2018.

The two day conference, officially supported by UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) will be held on 23 – 24 October 2018 in Dubai. The event is set to be a unique platform for airport and airline operators, regulators, security solution providers, consultants and analysts to get together and discuss new innovative approaches to managing some of the most pressing issues in airport and aviation security including cargo and passenger handling, immigrations and customs, baggage screening, catering and landside security, and more.
