AfBAA and NBAC to co-host West African Business Aviation Symposium

Posted 13 February 2017 · Add Comment

The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) has teamed up with EAN Aviation, organisers of the annual Nigerian Business Aviation Conference, NBAC, to merge the two respected meetings into one powerful event.

In a value-add for delegates the two meetings will come together to spearhead discussions about the value of creative business thinking, and how it can stimulate new ideas to help navigate the increasingly challenging world of business aviation in the region. The organisers have designed the programme with the aim of providing a set of pragmatic tools that will support the region’s stakeholders’ future planning and development.

Networking will also from a significant part of the meeting and organisers have introduced a “Meet the Operators” session that will enable suppliers and operators to effectively network in a dedicated environment. “We see operators as a lynchpin for the industry and want to facilitate meetings that will be genuinely useful for both parties,” said Rady Fahmy, CEO of AfBAA.

The programme will include discussions about human resources and training; the benefits of purchasing pre-owned as opposed to new aircraft; and look at how to plan for ongoing success. Presentations will explore the perception of West African business aviation and a case study will look at how the closure of Abuja airport, Nigeria’s legislative capital may have affected the sector.

“We’ve create a dynamic programme with some fascinating new themes for delegates to debate. We are sure we can provide several tangible take-aways that will contribute to business longevity,” added Segun Demuren, CEO of co-host EAN Aviation.
