Dubai To Host Emerging Markets Airport Security Summit (EMASS)


August 2014

The current freight industry around the globe is largely concerned with the issue of airport safety in emerging markets. This holds especially true for the UAE freight and logistics industry. Dubai is all set to host the Emerging Markets Airport Security Summit (EMASS) in November this year. The venue is Le Meridian Hotel on Airport Road and the Summit will be held on 26th and 27th November.

The Summit, organized by Arabian Reach FZE LLC, is being awaited with bated breath among industry experts and players. It is probably being looked upon as an important means for creating enhanced awareness about airport safety.

What Lies In The Summit For Freight Industry Names?

Well, among all other things, one that comes to mind here is the understanding that can be developed on the subject of airport security. More so, the Summit could stir in much needed strength for the industry in the UAE and in its airspace.

Given that UAE is not just a dot on the air map anymore, we need to understand that the Emirati aviation and related freight industry has worked to create a very strong foundation of safety over the years. The Summit is aimed at fostering and furthering this culture.

With time, more and more emerging markets have been seeing airports come across as priority hubs for freight traffic. Given that they are strongly entwined with the economic stature of UAE, the industry players need to develop a consistent understanding that ensures continued safety at these hubs.

The Summit could, by our understanding, double as means for delegates to ideate on the markets. With figures for the industry’s growth set to grow manifold in the coming ten years, the Summit holds crucial importance today.

What Will EMASS Showcase?

  • Latest technology in the niche
  • Latest equipment for safety
  • Inputs on services that can enhance security levels at airports
  • More than 25 firms engaged in security solutions for freight and passengers at airports, will be part of the summit. In addition, we expect close to 200 or even more safety industry pros and stakeholders to elaborate over issues allied to safety at such growing hubs.
