Spreading your Wings: 7 Reasons to Attend NBAA this Year


Tradeshows are investments. As with any investment, it makes no sense to proceed without the potential to see some returns. The cost associated with attending or exhibiting is easy to calculate. The returns are not necessarily as black and white. Some returns are recognized immediately as deals are made on the showroom floor every day at NBAA. However, some of the advantages don’t jump onto an income statement right away as many benefits are realized in the long term.

Here are seven reasons you should consider it:

  1. Exposure
    NBAA is the sixth largest tradeshow in the United States and the largest of its kind in the world. With every major player in the business aviation industry in attendance, this is the place to get your name out there and build brand awareness.
  2. Networking
    With 27,000 aviation professionals in attendance from all over the world, this is the show to make the connections you need to expand your professional network.
  3. Innovation
    The business aviation industry is constantly moving forward. Stay on top of the technology, trends, and latest products at NBAA as they will all be on display.
  4. Planning
    Many industry leaders wisely utilize NBAA as the starting point of their annual strategies. Critical business decisions are often made easier in an environment focused on what’s next in aviation.
  5. Education
    With over 50 education sessions over the course of the event, there will be a seminar that suits your company. Brush up on everything from regulatory changes to economic outlooks and beyond.
  6. Vendors
    NBAA is the greatest collection of suppliers you will find in the business aviation business all in one place all year. If you are looking to build or expand a line of vendor relationships, this one show may a turnkey solution.
  7. Customers
    Of the 27,000 attendees, nearly half (46% in 2015) were decision makers in executive management roles. Owners, CEOs, and company presidents are well represented making NBAA a prime destination to get deals done.
  8. Fun!
