WASHINGTON, DC, January 3, 2007 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the Associação Brasileira de Aviação Geral (ABAG) today announced the dates and organization for the next Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE2007).

LABACE – which was postponed last year because of a combination of factors, including construction at Congonas Airport (the intended site for LABACE2006) – is scheduled to take place from Thursday, August 9 through Saturday, August 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The city has hosted the event since its inception. A specific event site is expected to be announced early this year.

ABAG will be the primary party responsible for the production of LABACE2007, including the organization of the exhibit floor, Static Display of Aircraft and other event elements. NBAA will continue to support LABACE2007 through promotions, participation in the event program from NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen, and other initiatives.

"ABAG's professional staff and member companies have expressed a desire to put their knowledge of the culture and business aviation community in Brazil to work for an even better LABACE for Exhibitors and Attendees," said Bolen. "After three years, ABAG is moving into the lead, and will coordinate the event from Sao Paulo. We fully support this development, and we know ABAG is dedicated to producing a premiere event for the Latin American business aviation community."

ABAG Chairman Rui Thomaz de Aquino thanked Bolen, adding: "ABAG is committed to continuing the tradition of excellence for LABACE. As just one example of that commitment, it is our objective to offer a facility where the main Exhibitor's pavilion is located side by side with the Static Display of Aircraft for LABACE2007. We will announce the location early this year."
