WASHINGTON, DC, September 16, 2008 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today reminded those planning to attend and exhibit at NBAA's 61st Annual Meeting & Convention (NBAA2008) in Orlando next month that the show will take place on a Monday-through-Wednesday (October 6–8) schedule instead of the traditional Tuesday-through-Thursday program.

"We just want to remind people that this change means that everything will start a day early at this year's show," said Kathleen Blouin, NBAA senior vice president, conventions, seminars & forums. "The 'Media Day,' when many Exhibitors hold press conferences to announce their news, will be on Sunday, October 5. On the morning of Monday, October 6, the Media Kickoff Breakfast and Opening General Session will take place, after which the exhibit floor and Static Display of Aircraft will open to all Attendees. And the show will conclude on a Wednesday – October 8 – as opposed to the usual Thursday close, which people have become accustomed to."

This year's Convention will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, with a Static Display of Aircraft at Orlando Executive Airport (ORL). Exhibitors and Attendees needing more information about the program for the Annual Meeting & Convention can review the program schedule on NBAA's web site, web.nbaa.org/public/cs/amc/2008/program.
