NBAA Is Green

NBAA is committed to protecting the environment and encourages Exhibitors to follow suit. All promotional materials, signs and banners will be produced on eco-friendly materials. When possible, e-mail messages will be sent in lieu of direct mail. Drinking glasses and water coolers or pitchers of water will be available for Attendees at the Annual Meeting & Convention, as opposed to plastic bottles. NBAA will use silverware and cloth or recycled paper napkins rather than Styrofoam, plastic dishes and utensils. Lights, heat and air conditioning will be turned off when not needed. We challenge all Attendees to walk from nearby hotels, ride the NBAA Shuttle Buses or carpool rather than driving alone. We’ll provide information on other green initiatives planned for the NBAA Convention in future advisories. Review NBAA's Environmental Policy.

Children ages 12 to 18 will be permitted into the Convention Center Exhibit Halls and Static Display during official Exhibit hours only, provided that they register, pay appropriate fees and be accompanied by an adult. Children ages 12 to 18 are admitted, with the understanding that they are the sole responsibility of an accompanying adult.

Attendees With Disabilities

NBAA will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who make their situation known to NBAA personnel.

Contact NBAA's Mark Libby at to obtain information for a supplier of such vehicles. Only trained service animals with proper supervision are permitted at NBAA2009.
