The European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE), which will take place from May 20 to 22 this year in the Palexpo Convention Centre at Geneva International Airport, is second only in the business aviation industry calendar to the NBAA Convention in the U.S. and serves as a particular focus for operators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It also takes place only about one month after ABACE in Shanghai (April 15 to 17), and is organized by NBAA (Booth H529) and the Brussels-based European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).
The 13th annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) opens at the Palexpo center in Geneva next Tuesday. Intelligence gathering ahead of this year’s three-day show suggests that as many as four new jet models could be launched.
Despite a “challenging” European economy, the 12th annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, which concluded yesterday in Geneva, “was one of the strongest EBACE shows yet, demonstrating its value,” organizers NBAA and EBAA said.
The show attracted 12,638 attendees from 99 countries–both numbers on par with last year’s show. Some 491 exhibitors occupied a record-breaking 2,280 booth spaces at the Geneva Palexpo convention center. The show’s static display area, which was 10 percent larger than last year’s, presented a record-setting 60 aircraft.
According to a news release from EBAA and NBAA, “as the third and final day of [EBACE 2012] concluded, 12,638 Attendees had participated, representing 99 countries – both numbers on par with last year’s show. Additionally, 491 Exhibitors were on hand, occupying a record-breaking 2,280 booth spaces across Halls 5, 6 and 7 of the Geneva Palexpo convention center.”
The 11th edition of the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (Ebace) is set to open on Tuesday in Geneva. Joint organizers EBAA and NBAA expect the event to be 16 percent larger than last year’s and, in terms of the area of booked exhibit space, it could even be the biggest yet with almost 500 exhibitors signed to set up shop at Geneva’s Palexpo center.
The ninth annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) starts next Tuesday at Geneva Palexpo in Switzerland, though it’s expected to be a bit more subdued in light of the current global economic woes. This year’s theme–“The Right Tool for Challenging Times”–aims to give attendees the tools needed to improve efficiency, increase productivity, save money and help their businesses grow in this turbulent economy.
The organizers of the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, a joint venture between NBAA and European counterpart EBAA, expect the 2009 edition of the show to be about the same size as the 2008 event, but are working on improvements aimed at making the convention better than ever. EBACE 2009 will take place from May 12 to 14 at the PalExpo convention center next to Geneva’s international airport.
At its inaugural staging in April, the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) did more than enough to seize a space for itself in the world’s crowded airshow calendar.
The eighth annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE), held this week in Geneva, has shattered records for attendance, as well as orders announced at the show. At press time, EBACE was heading to fulfill projections that more than 14,000 visitors would pass through its doors to visit the record roster of 444 exhibitors. Last year’s edition drew 11,267 attendees.
NetJets Europe is here at EBACE holding its first company-wide career fair tomorrow. It will start with a presentation at 11 a.m. in room D in Palexpo’s Hall 1. Attendees will then be given the opportunity to talk to NetJets Europe representatives.
