Media Resources for Exhibitors

NBAA offers a variety of media-relations resources for Exhibitors at NBAA2008, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Exhibitors in need of resources not listed on this page should contact Maureen Cameron at NBAA at mcameron@nbaa.org or (202) 783-9453.

NBAA Press Room

The NBAA Press Room will be located in the Orange County Convention Center, North Concourse and will open on Sunday, October 5 at 8:00 am (one day before NBAA opens.)

Press Kits

NBAA provides shelf space for your press materials in the NBAA Press Room at the Orange County Convention Center on a first-come, first served basis. You are responsible for the shipment of your press materials, as well as the maintenance of your shelf space. Please do not ship materials directly to the NBAA Press Room; instead, kindly hand deliver them on site. You may place the kits on your shelf space any time on Sunday, October 5. Please remove any press materials you wish to keep by Wednesday, October 8 at 3:00 pm, as those remaining in the Press Room after that time will be discarded.

Press Conference Information

In order to schedule a Press Conference at NBAA2008, please download the Press Conference Request Form from the NBAA2008 web site and forward the completed form to Maureen Cameron at NBAA at mcameron@nbaa.org or Fax (202) 862-5552.

Press Conferences will be held at NBAA2008 beginning at 8:00 am on Sunday, October 5. Press Conference Rooms will be in close proximity to the NBAA Press Room on the North Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center.

A schedule of Press Conferences will be posted on the NBAA2008 web site and a final listing will be posted in the Press Room on October 5. Press Conferences are scheduled to provide maximum press coverage without conflicts. Exhibitors also may schedule invitation-only press events in hotels, at their Booths or at other locations, although we encourage use of official NBAA press facilities to avoid conflicting events. Please alert NBAA as to where and when your Press Conferences will be held so that we can provide proper notice to Attendees.

Only Exhibitors at the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention may hold Press briefings in the NBAA Press Conference Rooms.

Press Conferences are scheduled in 45-minute time slots that begin on the hour. The last 15 minutes before the next hour are set aside to prepare for the next hour’s press conferences. For instance, if your Press Conference is scheduled for 10:00 am, you may begin setting up at 9:45 am. Your Press Conference must end by 10:45 am so that set up can begin for Press Conferences taking place in the next hour.

Press Conference Room Set-up

NBAA will provide Press Conference Rooms arranged to seat approximately 80 people theater style. At the head of each room, a raised dais will be positioned with one skirted table, five chairs and a podium with a microphone. There will be three table microphones on the dais. A pipe-and-drape backdrop will be installed behind. In addition, the room will be equipped for audio/visual presentations including an LCD projector, monitor and screen with dress kit. Skirted tables for press kits or other information are provided at the back of the room. We do not recommend that you serve food during Press Conferences due to their brevity and because food is provided for the convenience of the Press in the NBAA Press Room throughout the day.

Room Charges

There is a $525 fee per time slot for use of the Press Conference Rooms. This includes all audio/visuals stated above. Press Conference fees must be paid in advance of NBAA. Invoices will be e-mailed to you approximately one month prior to the Show. All accounts must be paid in full in order to maintain your Press Conference slot.

Inviting the Press

Your Company is responsible for inviting the press to attend your event; however, NBAA will e-mail a list of Press Conferences to the media shortly before NBAA2008 and an updated Press Conference Schedule also will be posted in the NBAA Press Room and on the NBAA web site (www.nbaa.org/2008).

NBAA maintains a database of press registered for NBAA. Copies of the list (in Excel format) are available to Exhibitors upon request. Contact Maureen Cameron at NBAA at mcameron@nbaa.org with additional questions about the press database.

Press Conference Signage

Signs provided by NBAA will direct press and Attendees to the NBAA Press Room and Press Conference Rooms, but not to individual events. A sign posted outside each Press Conference Room will list all Companies that have scheduled Press Conferences on a given day. In addition, an easel will be located outside each Press Conference Room should you wish to provide your own sign during your scheduled Press Conference time. The NBAA2008 logo will appear on the front of the podium. If you require any signage hung from the pipe and drape backdrop behind the dais, you must coordinate with Freeman. Information on ordering signage will be included in the Exhibitor Service Kit, scheduled for distribution in midMay 2008.

Show Dailies

Three Convention Dailies – Show News, NBAA Convention News and Flight Evening News – are published at NBAA. Your Company may submit information to the daily show publications, which are especially appreciative of advance news because of tight scheduling during NBAA2008.
