Dubai Airshow

On behalf of Greater Seattle Partners, I recently travelled to the Dubai in the with the Department of Commerce and a delegation of companies. It was an action-packed five-day event consisting of meetings and events with companies from more than 20 countries. It was honor to represent the largest aerospace supply chain in the country, if not the world.

Many other associated events took us around including, a welcome dinner at the tallest skyscraper in the world, Burj Khalifa; Deira and the old town Al Fahidi District; the AmCham Dubai  kick-off breakfast at the  South headquarters; AIA & U.S.-U.A.E. Council Reception in the US Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai; US AIA Reception at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai; and the  Airshow Gala at the Atlantis, The Palm.

I was also able to organize tours of the 777x and the Boeing ecoDemonstrator for our delegates, meet legendary Charlie Duke – the youngest human to walk on the moon, and visit the Chalets of the Industries Association (AIA), Enterprise Ireland and Spirit AeroSystems. Of course, the flying demonstrations on the tarmac and exhibits of new UAVs and defense products were amazing.

It was an exhausting trip with just one day at the end to visit the desert.
