Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 12, 2023 – Clark County board members, aviation officials, U.S. Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV-1) and area business leaders will hold a news conference at Henderson Executive Airport (HND) on Monday, Oct. 16, to welcome the return of the world’s largest business aviation convention to Las Vegas, and highlight the partnership between local leaders and show organizers, focused on economic investment and sustainability.

The National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA’s) Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) will be held Oct. 17-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and HND. The convention’s show floor will feature hundreds of exhibitors, including Nevada-based companies. Displays in the convention center and at the airport will feature dozens of aircraft and new flying aviation technologies, including eco-friendly advanced air mobility vehicles, propelled by electric, hybrid and hydrogen systems.

NBAA-BACE is anticipated to generate about $53 million in economic activity over the course of the convention week, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. The event, which is the seventh largest convention in the U.S., will have a sharp focus on carbon reduction, with an exhibitor sustainability pledge for reducing energy and waste. Additionally, all flghts departing from HND will do so with the use of sustainable aviation fuel, which can reduce net-carbon emissions from aircraft by up to 80%. The LVCC itself has a comprehensive plan in place for sustainability best practices.
