The SDC2021 team has compiled this resource for exhibitors to answer questions about the administrative considerations related to the show’s cancellation. NBAA recognizes that flexibility and choices are important, particularly during these challenging times. Exhibitors who have already paid NBAA for their SDC2021 exhibit space will have three options:

  1. Pay it forward to SDC2022
    Exhibitors may choose to pay it forward by applying their SDC2021 payments to a booth at SDC2022. In this “pay it forward” program, paid exhibitors will lock in their pricing for SDC2022 at the 2021 rates.
  2. Credit payment to a virtual exhibit at the 2021 Flight Operations Conference
    Exhibitors will have the option to apply their SDC2021 payments to a virtual booth at NBAA’s new virtual Flight Operations Conference 2021.
  3. Request a Refund
    Exhibitors may choose to receive a refund for their SDC2021 exhibit fees. NBAA will process all refunds by Mar. 23, 2021.
