The UK's London Biggin Hill airport will host the Air Charter Expo (ACE), the first in-person trade show in Europe since live events were paused in early 2020, as it returns on 14 September 2021.
Biggin Hill head of marketing Andy Patsalides says: “We are delighted to once again host this important event and bring the European air charter community together in person. During the past year a new audience has realised the benefits of private aviation, and its values have been reinforced to existing users.
“As we anticipate a resurgence in charter traffic once travel bans are lifted, ACE attendees will be able to refresh their knowledge on all aspects of air charter, as well as view an impressive range of aircraft, to provide the best guidance to their clients. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in September.”
ACE regularly draws large attendance by air charter professionals. This year's event will see training sessions, presentations and more than 20 aircraft on display.
ACE is produced jointly by The Air Charter Association, Business Air News and London Biggin Hill airport. Mark Ranger from Business Air News concludes: “The reaction to our announcement that ACE will take place as a face to face event has been amazing. Our industry has really missed the personal networking that ACE excels at delivering.”
