Business Aviation Convention-Regional Forums Offer Owner-Operators Convenient Access to Industry Resources

NBAAfocusHeadSmallWhile NBAA’s annual convention provides an unparalleled opportunity for owner-operators in the business aviation industry to network with their peers from across the United States and around the world, it is not always possible for these busy professionals to commit to a multi-day event. That’s where NBAA’s Business Aviation Regional Forums come in.

These valuable, single-day events offer an important opportunity for representatives from the business aviation community to participate in many of the activities that are staples of NBAA’s annual Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, in locations closer to home and offering quick and convenient, “in and out” access.

In 2015, editions of these popular forums will be held at airports in Florida, New Jersey, and Missouri.

On Feb. 19, 2015, Atlantic Aviation at
Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) will host the inaugural Business Aviation Regional Forum for the year, with additional facility support courtesy of GAMA Aviation and Signature Flight Support. The Teterboro, NJ forum takes place June 25 at Landmark Aviation at the
Teterboro Airport (TEB). The final forum of 2015 is set for Sept. 17 at the St. Louis Downtown Airport (CPS) in East St. Louis, IL at the Jet Aviation facility located just 3 miles from the St. Louis Gateway Arch.

NBAA5“These cities have been popular locations for past forums given the high concentration of NBAA Members and Member Companies in the area, the locations’ access to airline service, their variety of lodging options and other benefits,” noted NBAA President and
CEO Ed Bolen. We’re confident these venues will be well received in 2015.”

Bolen added that the regional forum venues also complement the location of the 2015
NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2015) to be held Nov. 17-19, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV.

Participants in NBAA’s Business Aviation Regional Forums benefit from many of the same seminars, side-by-side static displays of aircraft, and education sessions offered at the annual convention, in a handier format. These events also offer an important venue for local business aviation leaders to exchange information about specific airport policies, environmental protocols, safety and security proposals, taxation and other issues.

In addition to these services for the business aviation community, NBAA’s regional forums also offer the valuable opportunity for industry representatives to meet with local officials and other leaders interested in learning more about the industry, and underscore the importance of a healthy and vibrant general aviation and business aviation the industry to local leaders in business and government.
