NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forums bring current and prospective business aircraft owners, operators, manufacturers, customers and other industry personnel together for a one-day event at the best airports and FBOs in the nation.
These day-long learning and networking experiences are designed to provide local business leaders and prospective aircraft operators with an introduction to business aviation and how it can help their companies grow, and to meet the needs of the regional business aviation community by providing education sessions, static aircraft and exhibits all in one location.
Because the Regional Forums are hosted in locations across the country annually, Exhibitors and Attendees can meet with sales prospects and colleagues to share ideas relative to business aviation in their particular geographic regions.

Static Display of Aircraft Exhibitors
The fee for your static space is calculated based on 10 ft by 10 ft space increments. For example, an aircraft with a wing span of 54 ft and length of 57 ft requires a 60 ft by 60 ft space, or 36 10 ft by 10 ft spaces. All aircraft on the Static Display are required to arrive by noon on the day preceding the Forum. Aircraft will begin to depart at 4:00 pm the day of the Forum. With prior approval, exhibits that do not feature real aircraft are permitted on the Static Display (mock-ups, service vehicles, etc..) and will be charged the equivalent of one indoor exhibit space or the actual amount of occupied space whichever is greater.
Ground power units and air-conditioning units can be obtained from AEM International at www.aeminternational.com, which will bill you directly for these services. Order forms for these services will be included in the Exhibitor Service Kit.
Tents are not permitted on the Static Display at Regional Forums. Exhibitors may, however, use patio/market umbrellas next to their aircraft.
