Stage Set For EBACE
The second-biggest business aviation show in the world is less than a week away and judging by the email traffic, the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition is looking to tap into that elusive recovery that has been hoped for and predicted for so long. The show gets under way at PALEXPO at Geneva International Airport next Tuesday and all the players in the business aviation industry will participate. About 500 exhibitors are registered.
While the National Business Aviation Association meeting (this year it's in Las Vegas from Oct. 10-12) is the largest and most important bizav show, EBACE is almost as important because of its proximity to emerging markets in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. This year will feature an enhanced package of forums and educational events in addition to the usual display of shiny planes and the stuff that makes them work.
