The National Business Aviation Association has changed the name of its largest U.S. annual event to the Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, or BACE.
It had formerly been called its “Annual Meeting and Convention.”
“In recent decades, (the event) has grown in size and importance to be much more than just a meeting, and this change reflects that reality,” ED Bolen, NBAA president and CEO, said in a statement. “The change also strengthens the overall brand for NBAA’s shows, underscoring their status as world-class events.”
The first convention was held in 1947 and is now the fifth largest U.S. trade show, according to NBAA.
