The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today brought to a close its 2018 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE).
According to NBAA, it was an event “characterized by energy, excitement and a focus on the future.”
“It certainly seemed that NBAA-BACE exceeded even the highest expectations,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.
“Exhibitors told us their booths were packed, and attendees continually remarked on the latest technologies and services displayed on the show floor, the quality of our sessions and the networking opportunities available.”
NBAA-BACE was held Oct. 16–18 at the Orange County Convention Center and Orlando Executive Airport.
Bolen added that the positive energy was palpable in every corner of the show floor and static display. “The convention showed that this is one of the best environments for business aviation in decades,” said Bolen.
“We focused on the people, technologies and leadership qualities that will maximize today’s opportunities, while keeping an eye on the investment and innovation that will drive the industry’s future.”

“This year’s convention highlighted business aviation’s proud history, exciting present and inspiring dreams for the future – a future that has never felt so close as it did this week,” Bolen continued.
