NBAA cancels 2020 conference in Florida
The National Business Aviation Association on July 1 announced the cancellation of its 2020 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, which was scheduled to take place in Orlando, FL, from October 6 to 8.
The cancellation, explains the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), is based on guidance from public health officials at all levels of government addressing COVID-19. The association points to a recent Florida Department of Health advisory recommending that individuals avoid participation in gatherings of more than 50 people, as well as how numerous states, including Florida, have onerous travel restrictions in place.
“The promotion of safety is a primary reason NBAA was founded in 1947, and safety is at the foundation of all we are today,” said Ed Bolen, president and CEO, NBAA. “As COVID-19 has emerged as a pandemic, NBAA has consistently looked to local, state, federal and global health officials to inform our decisions and guide our actions with regard to live events.”
The 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition is scheduled to take place from October 12 to 14 in Las Vegas, NV.
