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 at exhibits@nbaa.org for approval.

Only trained service animals with proper supervision are permitted at NBAA-BACE.
