Our first official Air Show since we launched pingdubai.com was on this 2013 edition. As with every big event in town, we try to bring it to you from a different perspective, and the Air Show is more than a big event, but full of adrenaline rush, lifestyle, travel, and some unforgettable moments.
We geared up with some flight instruments, and drove all the way to the new Dubai World Central Maktoum airport in Jebel Ali. Straight to our friends at Bell&Ross to check on their booth, meet the lovely Boeing pilots who made sure our trip is never complete without we go straight to the fighter jets and take off on the runaway.
Now, will leave it for you to enjoy the video recap we’ve created for you to bring you the experience to your home screen, as well enjoy the very exclusive photos we’ve developed.
Luxury Watch Brand Bell & Ross exhibited at the Dubai Airshow 2013, in the presence of 60,692 trade attendees and 1,046 exhibitors from 60 countries around the world.
Counting up 1,735 international and regional media, records were broken with orders totaling $206.1 billion – the largest in Airshow history.
According to Sharief Fahmy, CEO of Dubai Airshow organisers, “Dubai Airshow this week stepped into the record books of aviation history, breaking all records in terms of the value of deals done. The world’s most powerful aerospace companies now come to Dubai to do business, in what is now the world’s most exciting, innovative and business-friendly environment”.
Bell & Ross naturally took part in this major event, according to its origins and its first inspiration: the aeronautic.
Guests were given the opportunity to discover some of the most exclusive watch models of the brand and more especially, the Vintage Sport Heritage Collection, a tribute to the civil aviation of the 1960’s, as well as the Vintage Falcon, a design created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dassault’s Falcon jet.
The booth was constantly crowded with interested visitors from the aviation world, with the flight instruments box being a subject of intrigue and of interest to the pilots around the exhibition.
