Static Display Exhibit Space Assignment

Assignment of all exhibit space is at the sole discretion of show management. Exhibitors’ locations will be based upon the overall size of the requested space, number of aircraft to be on display, size and orientation of chalets, required aircraft towing lanes, and airport operational considerations. NBAA reserves the right to change the static display layout or exhibitor’s location at any time, including prior to or during NBAA-BACE, if NBAA, in its sole discretion, determines that such change is in the best interest of the event.

NBAA makes every effort to accommodate each applicant’s preferred location. If all space preferences indicated by the applicant have been allocated, however, NBAA will assign the best available space.
