EBACE 2017

The 2017 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2017) is a premier event and the annual meeting place for the European business aviation community. Held Monday to Wednesday 22 to 24 May 2017 at Geneva’s magnificent Palexpo, the convention will bring together business leaders, government officials, manufacturers, flight department personnel and all manner of people involved in nearly every aspect of business aviation.

EBACE is jointly hosted each year by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), the leading association for business aviation in Europe, and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the leading voice for the business aviation industry in the United States. Although EBACE is the only major European event focused solely on business aviation, attendees come from as far as Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North and South America.

The impressive exhibition takes place over the course of three days at the magnificent Palexpo, which is strategically located within 10 minutes of the center of Geneva, and is immediately adjacent to the EBACE Static Display of Aircraft at the Geneva International Airport, a railway station and a motorway.
