Washington, DC, Jan. 5, 2022 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the Shanghai Airport Authority (SAA) announced today the decision to postpone through 2022 the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE), given challenges for exhibitors and attendees due to COVID-19, including travel restrictions.
ABACE is held each year in partnership with the SAA, and co-hosted by NBAA and the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA). The event was scheduled to take place in Shanghai, China from April 12-14.
“As we know, the continued pandemic has prompted governments around the world to institute travel restrictions and requirements, presenting significant logistical and other challenges for exhibitors,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “We were hopeful we could have held the event, but the health and safety of all ABACE participants is our highest priority, so we have elected to postpone it through 2022. We will continue to support the resurgence of business aviation in Asia and around the world.”
Since its launch in 2012, ABACE has become the premier business aviation event in Asia, attracting more than 9,000 attendees from 50 countries.
