The static display will be complemented by a two-day conference 9-10 March, sponsored by Jet Support Services, Inc (JSSI). Chuck Woods, Chairman of Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) has recently been appointed President Asia-Pacific of JSSI, one of a number of Western companies that has identified strong opportunities in Asia. AsBAA has more than 40 members and will hold its annual general meeting during Asian Business Aviation.
Chuck will deliver the conference keynote address before introducing sessions on buying and chartering aircraft, demand for pre-owned aircraft and regulatory issues, together with an update on how rules are beginning to relax in China.
Asian Business Aviation 2011 is set to be an outstanding success, with more than 20 aircraft on display making it the largest business aviation event in Asia. said Brian Thomas, VP Aerospace, Reed Exhibitions Hong Kong. Recent news that China has decided to remove many restrictions on the use of low level airspace is set to give a further boost to an already dynamic market for business aircraft. There can be no doubt that Asian Business Aviation in Hong Kong is in the right place at the right time.
Asian Business Aviation 2011 will feature both indoor exhibition space and a large static aircraft display, with corporate chalets at the Hong Kong Business Aircraft Centre. A new feature for this year enables business aviation exhibitors to have their displays right alongside the Static Aircraft Display.
Asian Business Aviation 2011 will be an integral part of the third Asian Aerospace exhibition Expo and Congress in Hong Kong.
