The recent Dubai Airshow set a new record in visitor numbers and exhibitors, reflecting the rebounding aerospace industry, say event organizers. During five days (Nov. 15-19, 2009) the event attracted 52,978 industry professionals from 138 countries, an 18 percent increase in attendee numbers compared to the previous show in 2007. The show also posted the biggest-ever exhibitor numbers — 890 companies from 47 countries, with 150 first-time participants — requiring an additional 7,000m2 (75,347 ft2) of floor space to accommodate the surge. Aircraft OEMs declared an onsite order book in excess of $14 billion (USD), including sales of civil and military aircraft, helicopters and engines, plus agreements for heavy maintenance, cabin refurbishment and crew management processes. Magnolia Plastics Inc. (Chamblee, Ga.) attended the event as part of a delegation of companies from the State of Georgia that shared a stand at the event and a chalet on the flight line.
