Washington, DC, September 28, 2009 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced that the Association’s Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) will be held Tuesday January 18 and Wednesday January 19, 2011, at the Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre (HKBAC) on Hong Kong International Airport.
 
“NBAA recognizes the importance of the Asian region to the future of business aviation, and we will continue to work very closely with our Exhibitors and colleagues at the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) to promote the growth of business aviation in that part of the world,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.

All elements of the ABACE Show will be located at the Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre with Exhibits, Education Sessions and Registration located inside the hangars, and the Static Display of Aircraft located on the ramp just outside the hangar.

“Having all elements of the Show in one location is cost efficient and convenient for our Exhibitors and Attendees at ABACE,” added Bolen. “We’re also very pleased to partner with AsBAA and the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) on content for the all-important Education Sessions dealing with issues of concern to Asian operators and those operating in that large and diverse part of the world. In addition, a Business Aviation Safety Seminar (BASS) will be an integral part of the ABACE program. Organized by IBAC, NBAA AsBAA and the Flight Safety Foundation (FSF), the Session will feature safety specialists from around the world.”

AsBAA Chairman and JetAsia Limited CEO Chuck Woods agreed, adding: “As with all past ABACE events, AsBAA is committed to support NBAA for the 2011 Show. We’ll work very closely with Ed and the NBAA Staff to ensure the success of ABACE for Exhibitors and Attendees alike.”
