The EBAA and NBAA have elaborated on plans for EBACE Connect, a virtual event to take place on 18-19 May 2021, the dates originally planned for EBACE 2021. That in-person show was recently cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
EBACE Connect is intended to engage the business aviation industry in a vital conversation around the issues and trends shaping the future of business aviation.
“EBACE has been bringing our industry together for more than a decade, and this year will not be an exception,” said EBAA secretary-general Athar Husain Khan. “With EBACE Connect, we will showcase the innovative and flexible spirit of our industry to learn and discover all that is coming our way in business aviation.”
“Now more than ever, it’s critical that the business aviation community has an opportunity to come together in a conversation about innovations and opportunities that will propel the industry forward,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “EBACE Connect will serve as that definitive dialogue, with insights and information to help participants think through their plans for the second half of the year.”
The two-day line-up will feature an opening keynote and several sessions focusing on trends driving the business aviation market, continuing innovations in advanced air mobility, perspectives from OEM CEOs, the latest sustainability technologies, and predictions about business aviation’s future in a COVID-19 context. The virtual programme will also include opportunities for press conferences from leading aviation businesses.
The two associations plan to launch a dedicated website with a detailed programme agenda, online registration capabilities and other information soon.
