Orlando, FL, Nov. 3, 2016 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today wrapped up the third and final day of its 2016 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Orlando, FL, and event organizers reported that the show was a success, by a host of measures.

“At the convention center and the airport alike, exhibitors and attendees have told us that this year’s NBAA-BACE was a resounding success,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “The activity level was high, and the enthusiasm was strong. Equally important, the show provided a reminder of the industry’s size and significance in the U.S., and around the world.”

NBAA’s 2016 convention took place from Nov. 1-3 at the Orange County Convention Center, and at Orlando Executive Airport (ORL).

As always, Bolen noted, the convention featured a number of press events, well-attended education sessions and high-profile speakers, several of whom paid tribute to industry legends Bob Hoover and Arnold Palmer, in whose memory the event was dedicated.

Bolen pointed to several additional noteworthy attributes to this year’s convention, which were likewise illustrative of its success: 

“By all these and other measures, NBAA-BACE was an outstanding show, which showcased the vitality and innovation that characterize our industry,” said Bolen. “As the event’s final day draws to a close, we are already making plans for next year’s convention in Las Vegas, NV, from Oct. 10-12, 2017.”

NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition is the country’s sixth-largest trade show, and the largest in the world focused on business aviation.
