NBAA2004 STATIC DISPLAY PRICING AND SPACE SIZES CHANGED
To simplify Static Display space requirements and to offer more flexibility to Static Display Exhibitors, NBAA has changed the size requirement from 20-foot by 20-foot spaces to 10-foot by 10-foot spaces. In addition, for the first time, NBAA will offer a prepayment discount of $15 per 10-foot by 10-foot Static Display space booked to all Static Display Exhibitors that pay in full by February 18. Last year the Static Display space price for a 20-foot by 20-foot Static Display space was $600, but this year, the price is $150 for a 10-foot by 10-foot Static Display space. In comparison to 2003, NBAA has lowered the Static Display space cost by $60 (from $600 to $540) if paid in full by the February 18 deadline. For more information about the new Static Display price and space size changes, contact NBAA's Joe Hart at (202) 783-9456 or jhart@nbaa.org, or Suzanne Cole at (202) 783-9257 or scole@nbaa.org.
