The Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) is looking to go local from next year. Ali Al Naqbi, founding chairman of the organization, confirmed here at the EBACE show that the association has chosen Beirut, Lebanon, as the site for the organization’s first forum, in 2013.

“The market is growing at a remarkable rate,” explained Al Naqbi, “dovetailing a private sector that contributes 75 percent toward GDP. This regional forum will provide the perfect platform to discuss the emerging challenges and opportunities within the private aviation sector in Lebanon,” he said.

The forum is expected to be supported by the government of Lebanon and involve direct participation from the Ministry of Transportation and the Lebanese General Civil Aviation Authority. It will be held at the Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport. MEBAA has not yet decided the dates for the event.
