WASHINGTON, DC, January 25, 2007 — More than 2,400 people attended the National Business Aviation Association's (NBAA's) 18th Annual Schedulers & Dispatchers (S&D) Conference held from January 21 to 24 in Phoenix, AZ, an increase of more than 9 percent over last year's total and a new attendance record. Attendee enthusiasm was high throughout the three days of educational sessions, which focused on topics to help schedulers and dispatchers improve productivity and create a world-class workplace.

The event attracted many newcomers this year, with close to 250 Attendees indicating that they are first-time participants, a 25-percent increase. Additionally, the number of Exhibitors increased from 322 in 2006 to 351 in 2007, a 9-percent gain and the most booths ever sold for this event. Reflecting the growth and success of the show, NBAA for the first time produced two Conference publications: the Show Program & Directory of Exhibiting Companies and the on-site newsletter Dispatch Daily.
