Oct. 23, 2019
Innovative new business aviation products received a special spotlight during the New Product Showcase, a first-time event that brought tremendous energy to the opening day of NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE).
Taking place in the Innovation Zone – described by NBAA Senior Manager, Certification Tyler Austin as “a contemporary-style learning area where NBAA members discuss forward thinking ideas” – the New Product Showcase featured a series of five-minute presentations from 11 different companies about their newest and most distinct products.
The value for both attendees and participating companies was evident from the start of the well-attended session. Attendees learned about a wide variety of new products in an easily digestible format, while companies had an opportunity to make a meaningful impression with potential customers early in the show schedule.
“It was a really impactful opportunity to get our product in front of new people,” said Shawn Scott, principal of Scott International Procedures (Scott IPC), who showcased his company’s new electronic plotting chart. “We’re something of a small fish in a big pond, so we appreciate the opportunity to present our new product.”
In addition to Scott IPC, the other participating companies were: Aero Crew Solutions, AeroLEDs, LLC, ALLProtect for Aviation, CCX Technologies, ForeFlight, Gogo Business Aviation, Jeff Bonner R&D, Inc., Schedaero, Textron Aviation and Thales. All are exhibiting on the show floor during NBAA-BACE.
“More than ever before, NBAA’s convention is characterized by new product announcements, underscoring how the show is a reflection of and driver for the industry,” said Mike Nichols, CAM, CAE, NBAA’s senior vice president of strategy and innovation. “We’re excited to place a spotlight on a wide array of new offerings from companies of all types and sizes, from around the globe at NBAA-BACE.”
