Geneva, Switzerland May 26, 2016 – As the 2016 edition of the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2016) drew to a close today, organizers said the show continues to demonstrate, in a variety of ways, its standing as Europe’s foremost business aviation event, and its value to exhibitors and attendees alike.

EBACE is jointly hosted by the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).

“This year’s show was a terrific success, characterized by a full exhibit floor, with lots of business getting done,” noted EBAA CEO Fabio Gamba. “It’s an affirmation that EBACE remains Europe’s most important industry event.”

EBAA President Brian Humphries agreed. “We’re very pleased with the level of enthusiasm we’ve seen this year,” he said. “In addition to the busy show floor and sold-out aircraft static display, our seminars and education sessions were well attended, and participants were very engaged with presenters and one another.”

NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen added: “EBACE exhibitors and attendees repeatedly told us this week that the show continues to be a must-attend on the industry calendar. Additionally, EBACE once again highlighted the size and significance of business aviation in Europe, and around the world.”

Gamba, Humphries and Bolen pointed to several figures illustrating the success of this year’s show:

“By every measure, EBACE2016 was a great success, and we are delighted with the support we’ve received from exhibitors and attendees,” Gamba concluded. “We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Geneva for EBACE2017.” The 2017 edition of the show will take place from May 22 to 24.
