NBAA2013 Exhibit Space Nearly Sold Out

About 25,000 attendees, including business leaders, entrepreneurs, prospective operators and other key decision-makers, will be on hand to see the latest products and services available in business aviation. The show takes place in Las Vegas from Oct. 22 to 24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and nearby Henderson Executive Airport (HND), and the Convention’s exhibit halls will feature products from the major airframe and avionics manufacturers, service providers and others. Make sure you’re part of the most important business aviation event in the world, and the sixth-largest tradeshow in the United States. Reserve exhibit space today.

Static Display of Aircraft Sold Out for NBAA2013
Convention attendees will have an opportunity to visit more than 80 aircraft on the static display at Henderson Executive Airport, as well as about a dozen more at NBAA’s first-ever indoor static display at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The NBAA2013 static display of aircraft brings together the world's most cutting-edge business aircraft in one venue, allowing business aircraft buyers from around the globe to make side-by-side comparisons of a wide spectrum of aircraft options. Learn more about the static display of aircraft.

NBAA’s Convention is an ideal marketing opportunity for companies of any size wanting to get their brand, products and services in front of thousands of potential customers. For example, Aerospace Service & Products, Inc. (ASAP), of Hudson, MI, serves repair stations and MROs in Chicago, Detroit, Lansing and the greater Midwest. ASAP has been in business for 12 years, and 2012 was its fourth time exhibiting at NBAA’s Convention. “We’re here just to be part of the community,” said Charles White, the company’s shop inspector, adding that Convention is also an opportunity for ASAP to see some of its part suppliers and build stronger relationships. “We come to this show mostly to get more name recognition.” Learn why it pays to exhibit at NBAA’s Convention.
