The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) cancelled its 2020 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, which had been scheduled for October 6-8 in Orlando. The cancellation is based on clear guidance from public health officials at all levels of government addressing the unique, complex COVID-19 related challenges associated with large indoor venues.
For example, the Florida Department of Health has recently issued an advisory recommending that individuals avoid participation in gatherings of more than 50 people. In addition, numerous states, including Florida, have onerous travel restrictions in place, and flights to and from many international countries are banned. These restrictions make it not only difficult, but in many cases impossible, for individuals and companies to participate in the world’s largest business aviation event.
We will immediately begin working with exhibitors and others as we wind down this year’s event and begin preparations for next year’s NBAA-BACE”, said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. The 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition will take place from Oct. 12-14 in Las Vegas.
