The new site at Marrakech Menara Airport offers plenty of space that will allow exhibitors to maximise their exposure and make the most of the networking opportunities available.” Many exhibitors have already committed to this year’s event, with companies such as Jetex, Seaprime and XJet joining sponsors Gulfstream on the site.
