NBAA, Freeman and the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) are working with local Orlando charities to collect unwanted exhibit and marketing materials that could be useful to those in need.

This reuse program is a great way to support NBAA’s environmental sustainability goals – by preventing functional items from being added to landfills – and instead giving these items a second life within the local community.


To participate in the program, exhibitors should complete the material donation form to provide contact information, booth number and brief description of donation items.

If your items are eligible for donation, NBAA Show Management will provide you with “Hold for Donation” stickers to place on donated items at your booth location.

Items marked with these stickers will be collected by Freeman and distributed to community members in need.

Approved materials for donation include the following:

  • Furniture (e.g. tables, chairs, couches, shelves, cabinets)
  • Lamps
  • Working electronics (TVs)
  • Office supplies (e.g. pens, paper, binders, clips)
  • Hardware and tools
  • Plants, both living and artificial, pots, dirt and mulch
  • Bags
  • Lanyards
  • Hand sanitizer

Prohibited materials for donation include:

  • Broken materials
  • Opened food items


For NBAA-BACE attendees with small amounts of excess show materials, there will be marked donation stations positioned by all entrances and exits of the exhibit hall.
