EBACE concludes with good attendance

The 2013 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition closed in Geneva, Switzerland, on Thursday with strong attendance, organizers say.

The show drew 12,353 attendees, 460 exhibitors and more than 400 reporters.

Its static display showcased 52 planes and was sold out with a waiting list.

Organizers — the European Business Aviation Association and the National Business Aviation Association — call the show a success.

“EBACE has proven to be of great value to the business aviation community — it has been a place where the industry has rallied together, made new announcements and set a positive tone, all of which has the business aviation community looking forward to the future,” NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen said in a statement.
