The forum will take place at the Million Air facility in accordance with local mandates and guidance from health experts, and with attendees’ health and safety as the highest priority, NBAA officials said. The 2020 Regional Forums, as well as the annual convention, were cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“NBAA is excited to bring the Regional Forum platform back in 2021 with the White Plains event,” said Dina Green, NBAA’s vice president for events. “This forum will feature the education sessions, networking opportunities and aircraft display so many members look forward to every year. This forum is traditionally one of the most well-attended, as the area represents a significant business aviation market.”
On average, NBAA regional forums feature 150 indoor exhibitors, dozens of aircraft on display, and about 2,000 attendees, association officials report. Education sessions examine the latest issues affecting the industry, such as updates to tax and regulatory changes and safety programming, as well as a focus on workforce development, including programming for students considering a career in business aviation.
