Business Airport World Expo organisers announce essential networking drinks party

The organisers of Business Airport World Expo and the boutique show, Business Jet Interiors World Expo, which take place at London Farnborough in just under two weeks' time, have announced that all visitors are invited to attend an essential, free-to-attend drinks party that will take place within the exhibition hall between 4:15pm and 6:00pm on March 20.

Influential bodies from BACA, the BBGA and EBAA are expect to join the informal gathering, creating one of the best networking opportunities for those in the business aviation industry of the year. No pass is required; just arrive at the exhibition by 3:00pm at the latest on March 20 to be granted access to the drinks party.

Graham Johnson, managing director of UKIP Media & Events, organiser of the international show and publisher of Business Airport International and Business Jet Interiors International, said, "These exhibitions are about meeting new people; contacts that can ultimately help owners and operators of executive jets attract more business or introduce them to new routes, destinations or ground handlers. This drinks party is a natural extension to the exhibition - it will arguably be the best chance to meet as many key people as possible. We're expecting over 2,000 attendees over the course of the three-day event and this drinks party should be one of the highlights."

Business Airport World Expo 2013 is Central Europe's only exhibition dedicated to showcasing the world’s FBOs and business aviation destinations to executive jet owners, operators and brokers. The three-day event, taking place on March 19-21, will see chief pilots,‚Ä®operations directors, scheduling directors, CEOs and managing directors, as well as brokers, come together to discuss the latest business aviation developments.

There will be almost 130 exhibitors from countries including Angola, Barbados, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Malaysia, Malta, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK, Ukraine, the UAE and the USA.

The World Expos will also host the free-to-attend Business Aviation World Conference 2013, which boasts a very strong line-up of speakers, including Bombardier's Joe Decrescenzo, leader of the customer account management team at the Global Completion Center; Magnus Aspegren, director of BMW Group Designworks' Singapore studio; and David Velupillai, marketing director at Airbus Corporate Jets.
