- When you will need to have this vaccination in order to attend the convention
- A word from NBAA owner and CEO about the vaccination decision
The National Business and Aviation Association (NBAA) has decided to make it a requirement for all Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition attendees to be Covid-19 vaccinated before the convention which is to be held October 12 to 14 in the new West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. NBAA added that it anticipates that mask-wearing will become a matter of personal choice for attendees and exhibitors.
NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen had this to say about the decision, “For decades, the aviation industry has brought people together and transported them forward safely and responsibly, we are leveraging that approach to aviation safety to guide us with regard to NBAA-BACE. We are taking guidance from health and safety experts and adopting trade show best practices. Including a vaccine requirement in the comprehensive safety protocols for the show will create the most interactive environment possible for buying, selling, networking, and learning.”
Health and safety experts say requiring vaccination is the most effective way to provide a safe environment for in-person events. NBAA remains optimistic about the prospects for the show, pointing to a sold-out exhibit floor along with new features like the Maintenance Pavilion and the Owner/Single-Pilot Pavilion. In addition, the association believes a number of major product announcements are being readied for the event.
