Review the rules that apply to all 2021 NBAA-BACE exhibitors, both indoors at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and at Henderson Executive Airport.


Accommodations for Attendees With Disabilities

NBAA will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who make their situations known to NBAA personnel. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not create an undue hardship on NBAA, change the nature of scheduled events or activities, or pose a safety or health threat to other attendees.

For safety reasons, only officially-approved vehicles are permitted to operate within the exhibit halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center or at the aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport. Individuals with disabilities who wish to use power-driven mobility devices at NBAA-BACE must contact NBAA at exhibits@nbaa.org for approval. It is the policy of NBAA that these vehicles be specifically used for handicapped individuals and exhibit the stability required to operate around exhibits and aircraft.

Only trained service animals with proper supervision are permitted at NBAA-BACE.


Badge Registration

Exhibitor badges are required for exhibitor access to the exhibit halls and aircraft display. Exhibitors may use their badge allotment for exhibit staff, exhibitor guests and EACs as they choose.

NBAA-BACE badges are for the use of one individual for the duration of the show and are non-transferrable. Attendees and exhibitors will be assessed penalties for badge swapping. Random identification checks will be instituted.

Exhibitors will receive an allotment of complimentary badges based on the following:

Badge Allocation Number of Badges
Premium Exhibit Space Exhibitor 7 badges per 100 square feet of space reserved,
up to a maximum of 100 badges
Standard Exhibit Space Exhibitor 5 badges per 100 square feet of space reserved,
up to a maximum of 100 badges
Aircraft Display Exhibitor – Indoor or Outdoor 1 badge per 100 square feet of space reserved,
up to a maximum of 100 badges
First-Time Exhibitor Turnkey Unit 2 badges per space reserved

Exhibitors may purchase additional exhibitor badges for customers, guests or staff at the reduced rate of $115 per badge.

All badges will be held for onsite pickup. No badges will be mailed in advance of NBAA-BACE.

If an exhibitor utilizes the services of an exhibitor-appointed contractor (EAC) or third-party contractor during official show hours, the exhibitor must provide exhibitor badges for those personnel. These badges can be ordered online as part of the exhibitor’s total allotment of badges. During hours other than official show hours, EACs are required to wear setup and teardown security wristbands.

Co-exhibitors are not allocated badges and should arrange with their primary exhibitor to obtain badges.

Exhibitor badges allow access onto the show floor on show days at 7 a.m. daily. Attendee badges allow access only during show hours. Exhibitors should not schedule meetings in their booths with attendees without exhibitor badges before or after show hours.


Bag/Coat Check

Bag and coat checks are available on press day, Monday, Oct. 11 and show days Tuesday, Oct. 12 to Thursday, Oct. 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Las Vegas Convention Center, for a nominal fee. Due to limited space, bag and coat checks are not available at the aircraft display.


Children

Children less than 12 years old are not permitted on the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) exhibit floor or at the aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport under any circumstances.

Children 12 years old and older are permitted in exhibit areas during exhibit hours with an NBAA-BACE badge. Children will not be permitted in exhibit areas during installation and teardown.


Co-exhibitors/Companies Sharing Exhibit Space

Some companies will share the exhibit space of a primary exhibitor as a co-exhibitor. A co-exhibitor is defined as:

  • Any company whose name is included on the exhibit space
  • Any company that has staff working at the exhibit space during official show hours
  • Any company whose marketing materials are distributed from the exhibit space
  • Any company whose products/services are marketed from the exhibit space
  • Any company other than the primary exhibitor with a different company name and a different business function that is sharing the exhibit space.

All co-exhibiting companies at NBAA-BACE are required to register and pay the $600 co-exhibitor registration fee.

Failure to advise NBAA of co-exhibitors in advance – including displaying the advertising of another company’s products or services – may result in a minimum additional charge of $3,610 per company, per booth and a minimum of $3,610 per company, per aircraft display space.

(BMI) to allow the use of live and recorded music from the ASCAP and BMI repertoires throughout the public areas of the Las Vegas Convention Center and aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport. Exhibitors are responsible for obtaining the appropriate licenses before the use of any work at any private function or that is not in the ASCAP or BMI repertoires.


Noise Levels

Sound levels within the exhibitor’s stand should not exceed 85 decibels as determined by NBAA exhibits team and must not disrupt the conduct of business of neighboring exhibits or show management events during posted exhibit hours.

Sound level violations should be reported directly to the NBAA exhibits team.

NBAA noise policy enforcement procedure is as follows:

  • An exhibitor in violation of this policy will receive a verbal warning from the NBAA exhibits team.
  • If a second infraction occurs, the exhibitor will receive a written warning delivered by the NBAA exhibits team.
  • If the exhibitor continues to violate the policy, the electrical power for the sound producing elements will be shut down.
  • Exhibitors receiving sound violation warnings may jeopardize their priority standing at future NBAA-BACE events.

Official Service Partners

To ensure orderly and efficient installation, operation and removal of displays and to eliminate confusion, NBAA Management has designated Freeman and other firms listed in the Exhibitor Service Kit, as official service contractors. NBAA management holds these firms responsible for quality service and fair prices and will intercede on behalf of an exhibitor in the event of faulty work or unfair charges. NBAA management encourages all exhibitors to place orders with these firms, unless a permanent arrangement has been established with a display house or outside contractor to set up and dismantle exhibits.
