The Department of Civil Aviation and the government of Dubai is organising the inaugural Dubai Aviation Forum set to take place next month.

The forum aims to bring together different aviation related organisations in Dubai in order to foster ties and promote the overall development of the industry.

"The future of aviation in Dubai impacts a range of services and suppliers and all need to interact with each other if we are to reach a consensus going forward. It is our intention that each segment should understand and consider the impact and needs of other aviation sectors so that a cohesive strategy can emerge," says Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation and chairman of Emirates Group

The two-day event will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on December 9 and 10 and is aimed at building strategy for the future of the aviation industry in Dubai. During the forum, the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation will be proposing a 10-year strategy for the aviation industry in Dubai. This will be aimed at jointly building an integrated network of aviation related services.

"The Department of Civil Aviation is taking the lead on putting together a cohesive strategy to take the aviation industry of today into the future," explains Jamal Al Hai, director of Strategy and Management Excellence, DCA.

A speaker panel comprising a range of varying aviation operators, including express companies, airlines, holiday and travel agents, cargo operators as well as aircraft manufacturers are expected to take part in the event.
