NBAA 2013

Living in the UAE one tends to attend the regional business aviation shows. MEBAA has always provided a venue for business aviation professional from MENA and the world to meet. Last week (October 22-24),
I attended my first NBAA Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas. The venue was huge, but so was the event, after all the USA is by far the largest and most mature business aviation market in the world.

Compared to other industry and trade events I attended, the mood was definitely upbeat. The halls were buzzing with activities and discussions. The people I talked to were all optimistic that things have turned around and that 2014 is going to be a good year.

What is most impressive about the NBAA is the amount of educational venues that were provided free of charge during the convention. The value of these venues in terms of knowledge and networking is priceless.
