Capacity Middle East: Overview

Capacity Middle East 2020

Connecting MENA regionally and internationally

March 2020, Grand Hyatt Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Capacity Middle East 2020 has been postponed. Please see official statement below.

We have been closely monitoring the situation of Covid-19 and its impact on global travel plans and the likely attendance at Capacity Middle East due to commence on 2 March.

After close consultation with our customers and partners we have taken the decision to postpone the event to a new date later in the year.

The position has changed rapidly this week as we are in a period of unprecedented volatility and we are aware of the increasing concerns related to travel safety that have emerged over the last 48 hours.

This decision has not been taken lightly but the health of our customers, partners and team is of paramount importance. We feel that as such an important event to the region, its postponement will allow the event to better serve its purpose.

We sincerely appreciate all the work that our customers, partners and team have put into the planning of the event and we believe that a postponement offers the best option to deliver value and certainty to our partners and customers.
