Dear Visitors, Exhibitors and Friends,
As LABACE 2010 comes to an end, we thank you all for being part of it. We had another good year, with 14,834 highly qualified unique visitors, 150 exhibitors and 56 aircraft at the Static Display, in São Paulo, Brazil.
We felt honored by your presence. Our feedback has shown deals were being conducted, the informational sessions were well attended and the networking was great. Over 200 attendees packed Latin America's very first Bombardier Safety StandDown.
This means we are in the right path. We will work harder to make 2011 even bigger and better.
I’m writing also to thank all of those who took part and worked at the fair to make the 2010 LABACE the best ever.
I want especially to thank those who have been with us since the beginning and who have shared our dream for shaping the future of business aviation in Latin America.
The Heads of Civil Aviation, Air Command, ATC and Airports privileged us with their engaged participation, offering their support and to see how Business Aviation is doing. We expect a process of increased collaboration between our Association and all stakeholders, in shaping how we will continue the growth of General Aviation in the coming years. Especially considering that twelve Brazilian cities will jointly host the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Two huge challenges for BA.
Our sister Associations: NBAA, represented by their CEO Ed Bolen; CBAA, represented by their CEO Sam Barone; and GBAA, represented by their CEO Hans-Henning Romberg; under the umbrella of IBAC, represented by its Director and ICAO liaison Peter Ingleton, presented us with important briefings and lectures about their experiences bringing together major events in their countries. THANK YOU ALL!
And I’m writing to invite you to come back next year to take part in LABACE 2011, to once more help us make this event, Latin America’s largest of its type, better than ever.
