Washington, DC, July 15, 2013 – Those attending the National Business Aviation Association’s 2013 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2013) in Las Vegas, NV, will have a new opportunity to review and compare a selection of business aircraft, without ever leaving the show’s exhibit floor.
 
In addition to the expansive outdoor Static Display of Aircraft at Henderson Executive Airport (HND), NBAA will also offer, for the first time at an NBAA Convention, an indoor Static Display of Aircraft on the main exhibit floor inside the Las Vegas Convention Center.
 
Linda Peters, NBAA vice president, exhibits, said the new indoor Static Display of Aircraft provides Attendees the valuable opportunity to examine between 10 and 15 light business airplanes and helicopters, just steps away from the show’s other indoor exhibits.
 
“We've reconfigured the main exhibit hall layout to allow expanded room for a variety of light aircraft to be displayed inside,” Peters added. “Attendees will appreciate the convenient location inside the hall, and the unprecedented access and higher level of integration with the indoor exhibits this display will feature.”
 
While the Convention’s indoor Static Display of Aircraft will feature lighter aircraft, including piston singles, light turboprops and helicopters, Peters noted that Convention Attendees will still have access to the show’s traditional outdoor, airport-based Static Display of Aircraft, which showcases a diverse variety of about 100 business aircraft, ranging from smaller types up through intercontinental business jets. The indoor Static Display of Aircraft will be located immediately adjacent to the shuttle bus pickup location for transport to the outdoor Static Display at HND.
 
About 25,000 business aviation professionals from across the United States and around the world will meet Oct. 22 to 24 in Las Vegas, NV, for the Convention, which will offer the premier opportunity for aircraft-purchase decision makers, entrepreneurs and other business leaders to meet and conduct business, make buying decisions and discuss current trends involving the use of an aircraft for business purposes.
 
NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition is the fifth-largest trade show in the U.S., featuring more than 1,000 exhibits displayed across 1 million square feet of floor space, as well as the two Static Displays of Aircraft. The show also features more than 100 education sessions covering topics of interest to all Attendees, from those considering the use of an airplane to support their business needs, to those who have long used an airplane to help their businesses succeed. Dozens of maintenance & operations sessions will be offered by exhibiting original equipment manufactures. For more information, visit http://www.nbaa.org/2013.
