15 March, 2017

Attendees of the 2017 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2017) will have the opportunity to hear from world-renowned experts in business aviation security, environmental best practices and a number of other business aviation hot topics during three days of interactive education sessions.

“Every year, we try to introduce very topical sessions to the agenda so attendees are updated on the latest trends, tendencies and legislation in the European business aviation market,” said Bianca Dorneanu, events operations manager for the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), which co-hosts the event with the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).

Brexit, Career Development and Industry Hot Topics in Focus at EBACE2017

“Our annual ‘State of the Industry’ session is always one of the most successful sessions,” Domeanu said. “Other hot topics this year are security challenges, best practices in environmental impact reduction and the very controversial Brexit and its implications on air transport in Europe.”

Education sessions include:

  • Enhancing Security Together / Business Aviation Security Challenges: This session will present best practices for the business aviation sector and discuss the impact of passenger name records and Regulation 2016/2096 on business aviation.
  • Brexit and its Implications on Air Transport in Europe: In this session, experts will help prepare attendees for unknown challenges ahead.
  • Best Practices in Environmental Impact Reduction: Environmental experts will discuss alternative fuels, carbon offsetting, air traffic management and weather considerations.

While EBACE has always been known for providing the most knowledgeable presenters and concise education session schedule for business aviation professionals in Europe, EBACE2017 will be more interactive and participatory than eve, Domeanu said.

This year’s Inspiration Zone features networking opportunities, including: Aviation Leadership – Cleared for Take Off: Women’s Networking Event, European Business Aviation Communicators Breakfast and YoPro Networking Brunch and Debate. The Careers in Business Aviation event has been expanded to a half-day event, exposing high school and university students from across Europe to the field of business aviation.

“This year, we focused on providing more time dedicated to networking opportunities and more interaction between panelists and the audience,” said Dorneanu. “EBACE is an opportunity for different segments of the industry – environmental specialists, security experts, communicators and the next generation of business aviation – to gather and debate.”
