Why Should You Exhibit at NBAA2014? Hear What Other Exhibitors Say
NBAA’s convention is an ideal marketing opportunity for companies wanting to get their brand, products and services in front of thousands of potential customers. For example, U.K.-based Powervamp manufacturers GPUs for all types of aircraft, from small piston airplanes to the largest airliners. Last year was the company’s sixth time exhibiting at NBAA’s convention. “We expect the show to be well attended. The market is strengthening, there’s no doubt about it,” said Managing Director Richard Roller. “People are buying new aircraft and they’re going to need new ground power units to power them up.” Learn why it makes sense to exhibit at NBAA2014.
