Children

NBAA Regional Forums are business events.

Children between the ages of 12 to 17 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 who 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 spaces
  • Any company other than the primary exhibitor with a different company name and a different business function that is sharing the exhibit space

Co-exhibitors must have an existing corporate relationship between themselves and the contracted primary exhibitor. All co-exhibiting companies at the 2022 Miami-Opa locka Regional Forum are required to register and pay the $600 co-exhibitor registration fee.

Failure to advise NBAA of shared exhibit space in advance – including displaying the advertising of another company’s products or services – may result in a minimum additional charge of $2,650 per company.

All co-exhibitors must be members in good standing of NBAA.

Once registered, co-exhibitors will have separate company profiles in the online exhibitor directory and a listing in the printed pocket guide. Co-exhibitors, like exhibitors, will need to log in to the Exhibitor Dashboard to update their company information for the online exhibitor directory. Co-exhibitors are not allotted badges and should work through their primary exhibitors to secure badges.


Demonstrations

All display material and demonstrations must be confined within the limits of the exhibitor’s purchased space.

Product demonstrations should not be placed on the aisle sides of exhibits.
