NBAA EXHIBITOR ADVISORY SUBCOMMITTEE SEES ECONOMY IMPROVING
The NBAA Conventions & Seminars Department held its annual Exhibitor Advisory Subcommittee (EAS) meeting on January 26, in Las Vegas, NV. NBAA relies on this important Subcommittee to provide feedback and advice to ensure that the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention, EBACE, LABACE, Regional Forums and Seminars are the foremost showcases in the world for business aviation. At the meeting NBAA learned (1) Most EAS members concur that the 2004 economy is already better than 2003 and they forecast that business aircraft orders will show a year-to-year increase, and (2) they feel the NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forums are an excellent format, almost like a "mini-NBAA," to reach local operators at a low cost.
