Aviation Business - - EVENT PREVIEW: AVIATION BUSINESS AWARDS -

What are you most look­ing for­ward to at the AVB Awards 2019?

It’s a great oc­ca­sion for us to meet in­flu­en­tial cus­tomers and no­table busi­ness part­ners, and en­gage with top in­flu­encers, key opin­ion lead­ers and de­ci­sions mak­ers in avi­a­tion. The event it­self is al­ways im­pres­sively or­gan­ised with pos­i­tive vibes and great net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. This year, Olym­pus is cel­e­brat­ing its cen­te­nary of sup­ply­ing re­li­able, high-qual­ity tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing in­no­va­tive test­ing, mea­sure­ment and imag­ing in­stru­ments, to the global market. The Avi­a­tion Busi­ness Awards are a great plat­form for us to high­light our achieve­ments and cel­e­brate with cus­tomers and part­ners.

How does your sup­port of the awards tie in with your busi­ness strat­egy?

For any com­pany, par­tic­u­larly one with cus­tomers, end-users and clients all over the world, the im­por­tance of hav­ing a re­gional base can­not be un­der­stated. This mo­ti­vated Olym­pus to open up a new base of oper­a­tion in Dubai in 2017 (Olym­pus MEA), to cover op­er­a­tions across the Mid­dle East, Africa and Turkey. The AVB Awards is valu­able for us to stay closer to our cus­tomers, and stay up­dated with in­dus­try trends and in­no­va­tions. It is a vi­tal plat­form to hear and to be heard from our cus­tomers, ex­perts and busi­ness part­ners.

In your opin­ion, why are the AVB Awards 2019 im­por­tant for re­gional avi­a­tion?

The UAE’s avi­a­tion in­dus­try has evolved faster than many other well-de­vel­oped economies. The Avi­a­tion Busi­ness Awards are im­por­tant as they gather key play­ers, top de­ci­sion and strat­egy mak­ers, in­flu­encers from the re­gion, as well as in­ter­na­tional avi­a­tion ex­perts, pro­vid­ing them a plat­form to share ex­per­tise, be ex­posed to the lat­est in­no­va­tions, ac­knowl­edge re­gional lead­er­ship, and cel­e­brate achieve­ments in a glam­our and pres­ti­gious way.
