NBAA 2013 Next Week
The National Business Aviation Association's annual convention and exhibition scheduled for the Las Vegas convention center, Oct. 22 through 24, is expected to attract 25,000 attendees and more than 1000 exhibitors. Attendees will have access to more than 100 education sessions about the most pressing concerns facing business aviation today, in this country and abroad. The association will recognize 14 member companies "for outstanding safe flying achievement" and highlight 282 companies that have compiled more than 11,000,000 safe hours flown, according to NBAA. The association will also focus on making the industry's voice heard in Washington.
"Business aviation has faced a host of policy challenges from Washington in recent years," says NBAA, demonstrating the need for active efforts within the industry to impress upon elected officials the "size and significance" of the sector. NBAA will operate this year's convention with designated kiosks for attendees that are set up to facilitate contact with members of Congress. The kiosks will serve as a "tool to make the unified voice of business aviation heard in Washington," according to NBAA.
