12 May 2016

Are you a business aviation professional under age 35 – or young at heart – hoping to be an innovator in the industry? The 2016 European Business Aviation & Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2016) will host the second annual EBACE Young Professionals (YoPro) session and networking event on 25 May from 17:15 to 19:00 in the Inspiration Zone to encourage young professionals to become leaders in the industry.

EBACE2016 Offers Networking Event Aimed at Young Professionals

“We are very excited about our second EBACE YoPro event,” said organizer Sierra Grimes, of NBAA’s conventions and membership group. “While last year’s morning event was successful with great attendance, we expect this year’s format, now an early evening event, to be even more productive for attendees.”

The YoPro session will include a panel discussion among several European-based business aviation leaders. Panelists will explain how they became leaders of international business aviation companies and encourage attendees to inspire their own organizations to think beyond a local or national level.

Panelists include: Rohan Mark Jayawardene, CEO of Diamonté Jets; David G. Shannon, attorney specializing in business aviation and Diana Zuluaga, co-founder, JET D’OR, Inc. The session will be moderated by Lowen Baumgarten, from NBAA and Bianca Dorneanu from EBAA.

“Our goal for the EBACE YoPro event is to influence and inspire young professionals in business aviation to develop innovative ideas for advancing business aviation internationally,” said Grimes. “While the NBAA YoPro events typically consider the national perspective, partnering with EBAA for the EBACE YoPro event allows us to encourage young professionals to expand their own perspectives of business aviation and encourage their organizations to think globally.”

A networking event, allowing attendees to talk with panelists and other attendees, will immediately follow the panel discussion. The event will take place in the Inspiration Zone, Palexpo Hall 5.
