New Aerospace Director joins organisers

Dubai Airshow has strengthened its team with the addition of a new Aerospace Director. With the appointment of Caryn McConnachie, the show will benefit from her experience as it moves toward its 2015 event.

Caryn brings with her over 16 years of experience of running events internationally across the Middle East, Europe, Russia, North America, Latin America and Asia, in a wide range of sectors including aerospace and defense. She returns to F&E Aerospace, where she was previously Director of Operations, after five years with IDEX organisers ADNEC.

Under her guidance, exhibitors can expect an increased level of service plus draw on her wealth of experience for advice. In addition, she will be responsible for overseeing the show’s growth as it expands to meet the demands of market growth in the region.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to F&E Aerospace in the lead up to the Dubai Airshow 2015” she says. “It’s an exciting time for the industry in the region, and I look forward to seeing the Dubai Airshow continue to be an integral part of this growth.”

Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organisers F&E Aerospace, says, “The 2015 Dubai Airshow is shaping up to be our busiest ever. We are thrilled to have Caryn joining us as I know her appointment will enhance our team and have a positive impact on the show and our customers.”

Organised under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai Airshow is held in co-operation with the UAE Armed Forces, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Dubai Airports.
