Bahrain International Airshow Organising Committee, led by HH Shaikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, and ADS Group, the UK trade association for the UK’s aerospace, defence, security, and space sectors, have signed a framework programme to deliver a UK Pavilion at the Bahrain International Airshow 2024 (BIAS).

Following the signing of the Strategic Investment and Collaboration Partnership between the UK and Bahrain, this collaboration paves the way for continued cooperation and collective achievement across the aerospace and defence sectors.

Yousif Mohammed Mahmoud, director general of BIAS, said: “With this framework, we aspire to create the foundation for UK participation at Bahrain International Airshow that meets the highest standards of excellence and contributes substantially to Bahrain's and UK companies’ progress in the sectors. We are proud to embark on this journey with ADS Group to strengthen our relationships with UK aerospace and defence organisations and drive collaboration across the region.”

Kevin Craven, chief executive officer of ADS Group, added: “Formalising our commitment to the Bahrain International Airshow is the latest enhancement to our international business development activities, and exhibitors at our ADS event portfolio are up some 25% year on year. Bahrain International Airshow is a natural fit for UK industry, with close and deep industrial collaboration taking place between the two nations.”
