NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference is a business event. Children under 12 are never permitted on the exhibit floor – under any circumstances. Children ages 12 to 17 will be permitted into the exhibit hall during official exhibit hours only provided that they register, pay appropriate fees and are accompanied by an adult at all times. NBAA will not be held responsible by or for any cause whatsoever.

Dress Code

The dress code for all events at the Conference is business casual (slacks, skirts, blouses, sweaters and blazers for women, and slacks, polo shirts, button-down shirts, blazers or sweaters for men). NBAA also recommends wearing comfortable shoes for walking. Meeting rooms have a tendency to be cool, so bring a sweater or jacket.

Regional Group Booth

Are you interested in starting a new Regional Group or becoming involved with an existing Group in your area? Do you currently belong to a Regional Group, but are curious about what others are doing? Looking for best practices? Stop by the Regional Group Booth during Exhibit Hall hours to meet with other Regional Group leaders from around the country. NBAA's Schedulers & Dispatchers Regional Group Subcommittee also will be on hand to answer your questions, and will provide information packets with ideas on speakers, sponsors and more. First-time attendees – don't forget to have your passports stamped at the Regional Group Booth to be eligible for the drawing during the Grand Prize Luncheon.

Ambassador Volunteers

Attendees of the Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference will affirm that volunteers are the key to the Conference’s success! The Ambassador Volunteer program is comprised of exhibitors who have attended past conferences. Ambassadors assist throughout the week by lending a hand to help the expected 2,500+ attendees navigate their way around the conference. Exhibitors may volunteer to help give back to the conference by answering “Yes,” during registration to sign up to be an Ambassador Volunteer. You're also invited to attend an Ambassador meeting at 4:15 pm on Tuesday, January 22.
