With the industry converging in Las Vegas, Nevada, last week for NBAA-BACE 2023, Perrone Performance Leathers & Textiles, Global Appearance Partners and Granitize Aviation International took the opportunity to celebrate the role of aircraft detailers with a special event in the city on the evening of 18 October – the 13th Annual Detailer’s Reception.
“The main goal of the event is to applaud this unique group of professionals for their hard and exemplary work, while providing a forum for networking with other aviation detailers throughout the community,” said Kevin Shea, VP, sales, the Americas, Perrone Performance Leathers & Textiles. “The many challenges of the detailing community are largely overlooked, and they remain the backbone of the true customer experience in business aviation.”
“Perrone Leather has always appreciated the aviation detailing community for its expertise, work ethic and professionalism,” Shea continued. “We work well together, addressing the constantly evolving challenges that make up the aviation detailing industry. We are a better company because of their input and dedication to excellence.”
The event was first held in 2009.
“The detailers event is the highlight event of the year for us at Global Appearance Partners,” commented Jared R Wolf, CEO, Global Appearance Partners. “It brings together a very close-knit group of detailers and related companies in one location to spend some quality time together. These are companies that we work with every single day and the reception is just a small way to say thank you to all those that support this niche part of the aviation industry.”
“While we love seeing our regular partners in attendance each year, I got to spend some time talking to new detailers in our network and some people with whom I’ve worked remotely but finally were able to meet in person,” Wolf added. “Private aviation continues to grow and evolve, and both our customers and our vendor partners continue to develop their businesses in positive ways. At Global Appearance Partners, we truly love our role as the management company helping to support both in their day-to-day needs and providing a quality service to aircraft operators.”
