Accommodations for Attendees With Disabilities

EBACE Management will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who make their situation known to EBACE personnel. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not create an undue hardship on EBACE, change the nature of scheduled events or activities, or pose a safety or health threat to other Attendees. Individuals with disabilities who wish to use personal-powered vehicles at EBACE are urged to contact EBAA's Gabriel Destremaut at [email protected] in advance for approval. It is the policy of EBACE that these vehicles be specifically used for handicapped individuals and exhibit the stability required to operate around Exhibits and Airplanes. For safety reasons, only officially-approved vehicles are permitted to operate within the Exhibit Halls at Palexpo or on the Static Display at Geneva International Airport. Only trained service animals with proper supervision are permitted at EBACE.


EBACE is a business event. Kindly advise your sales people and customers that children under 12 are never permitted on the Palexpo Exhibit Floor or at the Static Display of Aircraft – under any circumstances. Children ages 12 to 17 will be permitted into the Palexpo Exhibit Halls and Static Display of Aircraft during official Exhibit Hours only provided that they register, pay appropriate fees and are accompanied by an adult at all times. Children between the ages of 12 to 17 will not be permitted in the Palexpo Exhibit Halls or on the Static Display of Aircraft at Geneva International Airport during installation and teardown. EBACE will not be held responsible by or for any cause whatsoever.


EBACE Management must be made aware in advance of any Co-Exhibitors who are planning to share stand space to ensure that stand signage and EBACE Show Guide listings are accurate. Co-Exhibiting Companies must be affiliated with the primary Exhibitor with whom they are sharing Exhibit Space.

All Co-Exhibitors must be Members in good standing of either EBAA or NBAA. Co-Exhibitors wishing to have separate, individual listings in the EBACE Show Guide must complete the EBACE2012 Show Guide additional listing request form. There is a $325 fee for additional listings in the Show Guide, which must be paid in advance. Co-Exhibitors, like Exhibitors, will receive log-in credentials to update their company information online for the print and online editions of the EBACE Show Guide.

Canvassing by exhibitors outside their assigned exhibit is prohibited.
