The Airport Show, whose 15th edition will be held from May 10 to 12 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), enjoys solid support of both the government and private sectors. The world’s leading B2B event for airport procurement, supplies, solutions and technology has been in the forefront of meeting the industry’s expectations. Over 275 leading global companies are expected to participate at the 2015 event, showcasing their latest technology, innovation and product offerings to a projected 7,000 attendees, including 150 hosted buyers and over 50 regional aviation authorities expected to attend the event.

Steinar Henskes (Founder & CEO of Bird Control Group, part of Birdstrike Alliance) will be one of the speakers on the Innovation Podium on Monday May 11. He will discuss the topic of Safe Use of Bird Strike Prevention Lasers. The aviation industry takes bird strike hazards seriously but we should always be aware of innovations. Lasers has been considered as one of the essential toolbox technologies of bird controllers, but have not been widely used due to safety implications. The next generation of bird strike prevention lasers are designed with safety in mind: we want to bring safety by mitigating bird strike risk but not introduce a new danger with a laser beam on airside.
