The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the co-producers of the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE), are calling for nominations for the 2011 European Business Aviation Award.
The award honours individuals and/or companies who have made a significant contribution to the advancement of business aviation in Europe, and is presented each year to one or more individuals and/or companies during EBACE, the only European exhibition focusing solely on business aviation.
EBACE brings together business leaders, government officials, manufacturers, flight department personnel, indeed all those involved in every aspect of business aviation in the European region. The exhibition is held in Geneva, Switzerland and takes place from May 17-19, 2010 at the Geneva PALEXPO.
