Despite a “challenging” European economy, the 12th annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, which concluded last week in Geneva, “was one of the strongest EBACE shows yet, demonstrating its value,” organizers NBAA and EBAA said. The show attracted 12,638 attendees from 99 countries–both numbers on par with last year’s show. Some 491 exhibitors occupied a record-breaking 2,280 booth spaces at the Geneva Palexpo convention center. The show’s static display area, which was 10 percent larger than last year’s, presented a record-setting 60 aircraft. EBAA president Brian Humphries, EBAA CEO Fabio Gamba and NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen were all pleased with the show’s strong outcome. “This year’s show was a tremendous success,” Humphries said. “The numbers demonstrate that EBACE remains the most important European business aviation event, even in–and perhaps especially in–tough economic times in the region.” Gamba agreed: “We’re delighted with the excitement and enthusiasm that surrounded this year’s show.” Next year’s EBACE show in Geneva will return to its Tuesday through Thursday format, running from May 21 to May 23, 2013. JetOptions‘ Vice President of Sales, Gus Lira, was in attendance.
