The 2018 edition of the Dubai HeliShow will take place on 6-8 November at the Royal Pavilion, situated at Al Maktoum International airport. The show is expected to attract at least 60 exhibitors and visitors from 30 countries.

Ahmad Abulhoul, MD of event organisers Domus Group, says: "In addition to highlighting recent advancements in helicopter technology, this year's edition of Dubai HeliShow will explore the segment's regional growth potential by bringing industry leaders, pioneers and other stakeholders together to discuss strategies to improve defence and homeland security capabilities.

"The show will feature three days of exhibitions, product demonstrations and networking opportunities, all designed to increase awareness of the major trends and developments that will impact the market's future."

The programme includes two conferences titled 'Helicopter Technology and Operations' and 'Military and Homeland Security'. The sessions will discuss ways to empower police forces, the role of women in homeland security, robotics in policing, tackling new patterns in narco-terrorism and best practices to boost inter-agency cooperation between armed forces and homeland security agencies.
