NBAA-BACE General Information

The NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) is the premier event and annual meeting place for the business aviation community. This event brings together key aviation contacts from around the world, including current and prospective business aircraft owners, manufacturers and customers into one meeting place to get critical work accomplished.

NBAA-BACE will feature over 1,100 indoor exhibitors at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), two static displays of aircraft – one inside on the exhibit floor of the OCCC, and the other outside at Atlantic Aviation at Orlando Executive Airport, more than 50 education sessions and networking with 27,000 business aviation professionals. There’s no other aviation event that matches it!

Accommodations for Attendees with Disabilities

NBAA will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who make their situations known to NBAA personnel. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not create an undue hardship on NBAA, change the nature of scheduled events or activities, or pose a safety or health threat to other attendees.

For safety reasons, only officially-approved vehicles are permitted to operate within the exhibit halls at the Orange County Convention Center or at the static display at Orlando Executive Airport. Individuals with disabilities who wish to use power-driven mobility devices at NBAA-BACE must contact NBAA's Cheri Rudd at for approval. It is the policy of NBAA that these vehicles be specifically used for handicapped individuals and exhibit the stability required to operate around exhibits and aircraft. Only trained service animals with proper supervision are permitted at NBAA-BACE.

Bag/Coat Check

Bag and coat checks are available on show days from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Orange County Convention Center, for a nominal fee. Due to limited space, bag and coat checks are not available at the static display.


NBAA-BACE is a business event. Children under 12 are never permitted on the exhibit floor or at the static display of aircraft – under any circumstances. Children ages 12 to 17 will be permitted into the exhibit hall and static display of aircraft during official exhibit hours only provided that they register, pay appropriate fees and are accompanied by an adult.


In keeping with the professional nature of the business aviation industry, dress for NBAA-BACE is business attire. This applies to all attendees and exhibitors, as well as to all personnel working on behalf of exhibitors in their booths.
