DUBAI -- Reed Exhibitions Middle East announced that the King Abdulaziz International Airport, or KAIA, will aim to source state-of-the-art technology and construction materials at the upcoming Airport Show 2011 in Dubai.

This comes on the back of KAIA's estimated spending of $11.3 billion towards its expansion that will extend the current size of the airport by 687,000 square metres and include two new terminals for international and domestic passengers.

Held under the patronage of Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports, and Chairman and CEO of Emirates airline and Group, the Airport Show is dedicated to airport construction, operations, technology and services. The 11th edition of the event will be held from May 31 to June 2 at Airport Expo Dubai.

"Airport Show each year serves as the perfect catalyst for networking in the Middle East to source the latest state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure in airport constructions. This is clearly visible with the participation of strategic projects such as the King Abdulaziz International Airport," Reed Exhibitions Middle East Show Director Mohamad Bader-Eddin said.

"Complementing KAIA's presence, we also have King Khaled Airport from Saudi Arabia participating as a hosted buyer. In a marked shift from previous editions of the event, this year the Airport Show is witnessing a surge of interest from potential buyers in Saudi Arabia," he added.
