The annual NBAA Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) is set to take place from November 1 – 3, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. The convention and exhibition will bring together over 27,000 industry professionals, including key decision makers, existing and potential aircraft owners and manufacturers.
NBAA-BACE is the sixth largest trade show in the United States, and the largest civil aviation trade show in the world. The three day long convention will feature over 1,100 indoor exhibitors and one of two static displays of aircraft at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). The other main static display, as well as more than 50 education sessions, will be held outside at the Orlando Executive Airport. NBAA-BACE is an ideal platform for networking, showcasing your brand, and promoting business aviation related products and services to business aircraft buyers around the world.
For further details regarding NBAA-BACE 2016 and its program schedule please visit the NBAA website.
The static display of aircraft will be held at the Orlando Executive Airport (IATA: ORL, ICAO: KORL). Indoor static displays and the main exhibitor hall will be located at the OCCC. The Orlando International Airport, also known as IATA: MCO and ICAO: KMCO is approximately 20 minutes drive from the convention center. Please note while KORL serves only General Aviation, KMCO has a high traffic volume due to serving commercial scheduled flights. Orlando International Airport is the second busiest airport in the state of Florida, serving over 40 million passengers so far in 2016.
Both airports are operational 24 hours-a-day and are fully-equipped for all ground handling services, as well as offering spacious lobbies and crew lounges. The static display at KORL is approximately 25 minutes drive and the Convention Center is about 20 minutes drive from the KMCO. Both airports are about 20 to 25 minutes away from Downtown Orlando, depending on traffic. Visiting operators are welcome to choose whichever airport they prefer to use.
Airport Slots, Aircraft Parking and Fuel uplift
Slots are not required for operating into either airport. There is plenty of ramp space available for aircraft parking at the Orlando Executive Airport. If you are planning on using KMCO, be sure to notify your trip planning provider as soon as possible in order to get guaranteed parking.
There is no VAT on fuel at these locations, meaning Jetex can offer very competitive prices to our clients. Operators are not expecting any delays on fuel uplifts during this event.
