This year, NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, FL, will include more than 100 companies that were not at the association’s 2017 convention.

“This year marks one of the larger groups of first-time exhibitors we’ve ever seen at NBAA-BACE,” said Chris Strong, NBAA senior vice president, conventions and membership. “That demonstrates the continuing growth and evolution of the marketplace, as well as the importance of NBAA-BACE as the premier showcase in which to highlight their companies’ offerings.

“NBAA-BACE always offers an impressive venue for exhibitors to showcase their latest products and services before an audience of approximately 25,000 attendees,” Strong added.

Several of these new exhibitors will be featured at the First-Time Exhibitor Pavilion, centrally located on the OCCC exhibit floor, with others located throughout the hall and at both the indoor and outdoor static displays of aircraft.

This year’s first-time exhibitors will come to Orlando from as far away as New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, China, France and the United Kingdom. These businesses also represent a wide range of products and services available to the business aviation community, including maintenance, repair and overhaul providers along with technology companies, parts manufacturers and distributors, and charter and fixed-based operators.

“I’d also like to invite everyone attending their first NBAA-BACE this year to attend an informal first-time attendee session on Monday, Oct. 15 from 3-4 p.m. for helpful tips on optimizing their show experience,” Strong added. “We’re committed to making this year’s gathering in Orlando a success for exhibitors and attendees alike.”
