2011 Predicted to be Biggest Event to Date

More than 460 companies are gearing up to showcase at the upcoming 2011 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, which will take place over a three-day stretch in Geneva next week. This year’s show, jointly hosted by EBAA and NBAA, will be the 11th consecutive EBACE and has already acquired enough exhibitors to break the 2008 record, setting up 2011 as the biggest show to date.

The event's many exhibitors include Gulfstream, which is scheduled to showcase four of its business jets, including the G550, G450, G200 and G150 on static display. Additionally, the company recently announced it will feature one-tenth scale models of all its aircraft in a separate 1,200 square-foot exhibit. Also preparing for this year's EBACE is Embraer, which will feature its Phenom 100, Phenom 300, Legacy 650 and Lineage 1000 on static display. This year's EBACE line-up will also include Cessna, Bombardier and many other big names.

In addition to exhibiting a wide array of display aircraft, EBACE will serve as a platform for a variety of different business aviation technology and service providers. A number of educational sessions and maintenance and operating sessions will also be held. The event will take place at the Geneva PALEXPO and the nearby Geneva International Airport from May 17 – 19.
