Countdown to Asia’s Premier Business Aviation Event

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.

ABACE2012 Exhibit Floor, Pavilion, Static Display Chalets Sell Out

As the weeks wind down toward ABACE2012, an unprecedented level of Exhibitor interest has led to a sold out Exhibit space, not only on the main show floor, but also in a new pavilion area created to accommodate added demand. View the ABACE2012 Exhibit floor and pavilion. Additionally, the chalets accompanying the ABACE2012 aircraft display have sold out. “This news is further evidence of ABACE’s standing as Asia’s premier business aviation event,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. Read the press releases about the sold out Exhibit floor, pavilion and chalets.

All Major Aircraft Manufacturers Participating in ABACE2012

When NBAA and AsBAA announced plans to reintroduce ABACE in 2012, the news was greeted with support from all of the major business aviation manufacturers. Looking ahead to the show, all of those manufacturers have formalized their spoken support for the event into signed contracts for exhibiting on the ABACE2012 Static Display of Aircraft. “We are delighted to have full participation from the world’s aircraft manufacturers at ABACE2012,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “The involvement of so many manufacturers provides show Attendees with an unparalleled opportunity to make an up-close, side-by-side comparison of a number of aircraft types, so that prospective buyers can consider which aircraft type would best suit their transportation needs.” View a list of aircraft scheduled for the Static Display, and view the current floor plan for the display.

ABACE2012 Education Sessions Will Put Critical Information in Attendees’ Hands

For example, a March 28 education session will explore the companies financing business aircraft acquisitions in the Asian region, what factors influence financing options and availability and other issues related to aircraft financing. A March 29 session focusing on business aircraft safety and security will include leading experts from around the world in a discussion on the steps aircraft owners and operators must take to ensure safe and secure flights.
