Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS)

BAHRAIN will break new ground next January with its very first international air show.  The site venue is within the immediacy of the Sakhir Airbase, the home of the F1 Grand Prix circuit.  Organised in conjunction with Farnborough International Ltd the show aims to be entirely different to anything else staged to date, a wholly new concept for the global aerospace community.  It is totally a business-to-business event catering for the civil, defence and business aviation markets.  BIAS has been masterminded to offer highly exclusive meeting opportunities with buyers and suppliers in the region as well as delegations from around the Middle East.  The show’s maximum 40 participating companies will be housed in luxury chalet units, complete with adjoining aircraft parks.  Already signed up are Bahrain Aerospace, BAE Systems, Bell Helicopter Textron Inc, Boeing, Cessna, EADS, Rolls-Royce, SELEX Sistemi Integrati (a Finmeccanica company), Sikorsky TAG Aeronautics Ltd, and recently, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.  Gulf Air is the official air carrier. www.farnborough.com/Site/Content/bahrain
