Washington, DC, December 17, 2004 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) seeks speakers for three Business Aviation Regional Forums to be held on the following dates:

  • April 21, 2005, at Republic Airport (FRG) in Farmingdale, NY (note new date)
  • July 7, 2005, at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) in San Jose, CA
  • September 15, 2005, at Centennial Airport (APA) in Denver, CO

The NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forum is a day-long learning and networking experience for the business aviation community and for local business leaders interested in learning more about this community. The Regional Forums provide a marketplace for business aviation products and services similar to the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention, but on a smaller, more intimate scale, and at a regional level. These events typically feature 60 Exhibitors, 40 aircraft on Static Display, hundreds of Attendees and a variety of briefings on topics of interest to the business aviation community.

“The caliber of programming at Business Aviation Regional Forums mirrors that of our many other seminars throughout the year,” said NBAA Senior Vice President, Conventions & Seminars Kathleen Blouin. “Bringing this level of content on the road to our Members is important to the mission of the Conventions & Seminars Department and NBAA.”

Speaker abstracts for the Regional Forums must be submitted to NBAA by January 14, 2005. All presentations must be limited to 45 minutes, including time for questions and answers. Presentations will be selected based on industry need, priority and timeliness. Each presenter will be responsible for his/her travel and accommodation costs. Following the NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forum, NBAA may post all presentations on the NBAA web site; proprietary information should not be included in presentations. Final presentations must be provided to NBAA at least two weeks prior to the Regional Forum date.
