The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has cancelled its 2020 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), which was scheduled to take place in Orlando, Florida, 6-8 October.
The Florida Department of Health recently issued an advisory recommending that individuals avoid participation in gatherings of more than 50 people, making it impossible for visitors and companies to participate in the world’s largest business aviation event.
According to NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen, “NBAA has always advised its members to conduct a thorough risk evaluation before every flight to determine whether or not the mission can be safely conducted. We have brought that same discipline to the upcoming NBAA-BACE, and we regret that this year’s event must be grounded. 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.”
The 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition will take place from 12-14 October in Las Vegas, Nevada.
