Countdown to Asia’s Premier Business Aviation Event

6 Months Until ABACE2012

The potential for business aviation in Asia is enormous, given the region’s population, economic activity, and need for transportation to cover the distances between business locations. These factors explain the importance of the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE2012).

The Show, being presented in partnership with the Shanghai Airport Authority and co-hosted by the National Business Aviation Association, the Asian Business Aviation Association and the Shanghai Exhibition Company, will be held on the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in the new Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aviation Service Centre from March 27 to 29, 2012.

This bulletin is among a series of special reports produced to provide news, highlights and other information as momentum continues building for ABACE2012, which will be the premier industry event in the region.

In a show of support for ABACE2012, a delegation of officials from the Shanghai Airport Authority attended a news conference at NBAA2011, where Vice President Jing Yi Ming said: “We deeply value the cooperation between the Shanghai Airport Authority and NBAA. Our cooperation on ABACE2012 will be just the initial step; I believe we will deepen our partnership in the future. ABACE2012 is a kind of seed we will plant in Shanghai, and in the future the seed will grow into a big tree. The city’s senior officials have told me that business aviation will be an important factor in the future of Shanghai’s economy.” NBAA and the Shanghai Airport Authority signed a long-term agreement securing the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport as the location for ABACE earlier this year.
