• NBAA is seeking ideas for education sessions at the 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), which will take place Oct. 12-14, 2021, in Las Vegas, NV. This will be the most transformative event of our professional world this year, maybe even for years to come. NBAA is looking for world-class presentations that will evoke excitement and are focused on forward progress and future growth, as we gather to connect opportunities and celebrate growth in private and business aviation.

    Education session proposals should feature these key elements:

    • Peer-to-peer learning
    • Highly interactive
    • Live/interactive polling
    • Adult learning best practices

    Special consideration will be given to proposals on the following topics:

    • Workforce and leadership development
    • Emerging technologies
    • Sustainability
    • Diversity, equity and inclusion
    • Advanced Air Mobility (AAM)
    • Futurist – forward-thinking subjects

    For 2021 the NBAA-BACE education session selection committee will be composed of NBAA staff members. If your proposal is selected to move forward, you will be contacted directly with the available opportunity. The available opportunities are explained below:

    • In-person – Roughly 20 education sessions will be selected to present in-person at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas. These sessions will be 60 minutes in length. All sessions will be recorded to provide opportunities for all attendees.
    • Online – A number of other topics will be selected to present their sessions online through NBAA's learning management system. This will supplement the in-person sessions and enhance the opportunities to engage for those attendees watching at home.

    Presentations must be educational in nature and may not market a company's product or service.

    In order to ensure the highest quality presentations and content, proposals must include the names and qualifications of all speakers or panelists who would be presenting.

    Education session proposals are due to NBAA by May 21, 2021. NBAA will make selections by June 30, 2021.
