  • While maintaining its in-person NBAA-BACE, the association is continuing to build out a virtual presence for the October 12 to 14 event, including offering “hybrid” education sessions. The association is planning to provide a full slate of virtual NBAA-BACE educational programming, as well as web-only features that at-home and in-person attendees can access, it announced today.

    NBAA also this week had announced plans to bring its New Product Showcase online and further said it is expanding its online networking platform that was used for last year’s virtual show to enable business aviation professionals to interact through real-time video and audio.

    “NBAA continues to focus on offering engaging content accessible to more of our members than ever before,” said Chris Strong, NBAA senior v-p for events. “We’ve taken the significant step to expand the number of recorded sessions and events available online in consideration of those who may be unable to attend NBAA-BACE in person.”

    More than two dozen education sessions are planned for NBAA-BACE, covering a range of issues from advanced air mobility to sustainability. The sessions will be available on NBAA’s online Learning Management System within 24 hours following the in-person presentation. In addition, the association is planning a number of on-demand-only sessions.

    In-person NBAA-BACE attendees will have access to the content for free, while at-home attendees will pay a single, lowered price for the content. The recorded education sessions can be used for Certified Aviation Manager credit.

    “Whether you’re at the show or watching online, this ‘hybrid’ edition of NBAA-BACE promises to be an exciting, dynamic, and informative showcase for the very best of business aviation,” Strong said.
