The Program

Hosted by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the giants of the aviation market, EBACE is well-renowned for its thoughtful panel discussions on the burning questions of the industry. Every year, top executives, aircraft producers, airline workforce, and representatives of jet rental companies will exchange their opinions on sustainability, social responsibility, and new ways to drive the air travel business forward. Discussions about sustainability are part of the Sustainability Summit, an effort to promote a zero-carbon future in aeronautics. Besides listening to the speakers, you might enjoy a variety of aircraft models displayed at the event in Exhibit Hall.

Day 1 (May 28, 2024)

If you're interested in the dynamics of aviation sales, during the first day of the event, Eric Lewin from AIC Global Solutions will moderate a talk on the trial-and-error path of a sales professional in this turbulent industry. The discussion will take place from 12:30 to 13:30 pm at the Conference Stage. From 13 to 14 pm at the Innovative stage, experts such as Freshta Farzam, Dan Sloat, and Volatus Ivor Van Dartel will participate in the "Future of Flight" discussion—a dive into the impact and innovation of air mobility technologies. The day finishes off with the State of the Industry talk, scheduled from 15:30 to 16:30 pm at the Conference Stage, where Harry Clarke, Richard Koe, and Rolland Vincent examine how the pandemic has shaped the future of aviation.

Day 2 (May 29, 2024)

The second day of the event is dedicated to the Sustainability Summit, which includes discussions on reducing the industry's carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. Another highlight of the event includes a compassionate talk on the impact of drones in rescue and humanitarian operations at 11:30 am at the Innovation Stage. The panelists will again reinforce the ideas that shaped the last few years of the industry in another State of the Industry seminar at 15 pm at the Conference Stage.

Day 3 (May 30, 2024)

The theme of sustainability continues on the third day of the convention! Bruce Parry, Kennedy Ricci, and Nicola-Jane Sellers come together to explore the approach of the industry to carbon dioxide emissions. Later in the day, from 13 to 14 pm, Dr. Anita Sengupta and Jacques-Alexis Verrecchia will explore the evolution of aviation fuel and future prospects. Additionally, talented individuals hoping to get a fresh start in aeronautics can attend Career Day during the event's third day and gain new insights from world-renowned business leaders.
