NBAA and the Shanghai Airport Authority (SAA) have decided to postpone the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) through 2022, given challenges such as Covid-related travel restrictions for exhibitors and attendees.
ABACE is held each year in partnership with the SAA, and co-hosted by NBAA and the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA). The event was scheduled to take place in Shanghai, China from 12-14 April.
“As we know, the continued pandemic has prompted governments around the world to institute travel restrictions and requirements, presenting significant logistical and other challenges for exhibitors,” says NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “We were hopeful we could have held the event, but the health and safety of all ABACE participants is our highest priority, so we have elected to postpone it through 2022. We will continue to support the resurgence of business aviation in Asia and around the world.”
