Citing concerns over the increase in coronavirus cases, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) is postponing the annual schedulers and dispatchers conference until spring.

The national event was slated for January in San Diego, California. The event has been rescheduled for April 5 to 7 at the San Diego Convention Center. The event usually attracts thousands of people from all over the country.

The decision to move the dates of the event was made as a precaution, notes NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen.

“With the recent emergence of the omicron variant, there is a lot we are still learning about this virus,” he said. “Moving the conference from immediately after the holiday season will provide us a firmer understanding of this situation so we can ensure appropriate safety protocols are in place as we move forward with our exciting and dynamic 2022 events.”
