Are the organizers of the Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) conference planning to turn future meetings into yet another bizav show? During the event's first run in November, the agenda was confined to speakers addressing various ways to use business aircraft in the region. In addition to deciding to make it an annual occurrence, "We are now working on expanding the event to include exhibition opportunities and a static aircraft park," said Virginia Kern, chairman of the company that organizes both MEBA and the Dubai Air Show. In addition to being held every other year during the Dubai Air Show, the MEBA meeting will be held in other "regional destinations" (except Israel) in alternate years. The next MEBA is scheduled for December 3 and 4 in Abu Dhabi. About 250 business jets are owned by citizens of the six Arab nations that are members of the Gulf Cooperative Council.
