NBAA Regional Forums are business events. Exhibitors are requested to advise their salespeople and customers that children under 12 are never permitted in Regional Forum exhibit areas – under any circumstances. Children ages 12 to 17 may access exhibits during official exhibit hours only provided that they register, pay appropriate fees and are accompanied by an adult at all times. 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 NBAA White Plains 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 $3.250 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. Co-exhibitors, like exhibitors, will need to log-iin 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.
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.
Normal aisle traffic cannot be interfered with at any time.
NBAA reserves the right to restrict exhibits that because of noise, method of operation or any other reason become objectionable.
Please be mindful of other exhibitors and events that are located near your exhibit.
Direct selling on the exhibit floor is prohibited.
Canvassing or distribution of publications/marketing materials/show dailies outside of assigned exhibit space, including all booth-to-booth distribution.
Canvassing and soliciting, except by exhibiting companies, are prohibited within 50 miles of 2022 NBAA White Plains Regional Forum. Exhibitors and persons violating this rule will be removed.
The dress code for NBAA Regional Forums is business casual, in both exhibit areas and education sessions.

Move-in & Move-out Rules
All exhibits must be set and in place by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22. If the exhibit space is not occupied by this time, NBAA management will consider it canceled by the exhibitor and assume the right to use such space as deemed appropriate.
|Tuesday, June 21||3 p.m to 6 p.m.|
|Wednesday, June 22||7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.|

NBAA has entered into licensing agreements with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) to allow the use of live and recorded music from the ASCAP and BMI repertoires throughout the public areas of the Westchester County Airport (HPN). 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 within the exhibitor’s space should not exceed 80 decibels and must not interfere with the conduct of business of neighboring exhibits. NBAA management reserves the right to enforce compliance of this rule.
Official Service Partners
To ensure the orderly and efficient installation, operation and removal of displays, NBAA has designated Freeman, and other firms listed in the Exhibitor Service Kit, as Official Service Partners. NBAA management holds these firms responsible for quality service and fair prices and will intercede on behalf of exhibitors 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.
Official Service Partner Logo
Exhibitors should look for the official service partner logo on official service partner order forms before ordering service, as well as on their emails and websites to ensure they are working with a NBAA-approved service provider.
No pets, with the exception of service animals, will be permitted in the exhibit halls or on the aircraft display at any time.
NBAA Regional Forums are non-smoking events. Smoking is strictly prohibited. This includes electronic cigarettes as well as vaping.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Remote-Controlled Aircraft and Helium Balloons
For the safety of attendees, flying objects, including UAS, remote-controlled aircraft and helium balloons, are not permitted. UAS may be displayed in exhibits provided they are stationary, fit within purchased exhibit space and comply with all rules and relevant safety requirements.
Any person who attends an NBAA convention, conference, seminar or other program grants permission to NBAA, its employees and agents (collectively "NBAA") to record his or her visual/audio images, including, but not limited to, photographs, digital images, voices, sound or video recordings, audio clips, or accompanying written descriptions, and, without notifying such person, to use his or her name and such images for any purpose of NBAA, including advertisements for NBAA and its programs.
