54th Annual AEA Convention & Trade Show Concludes in Reno
Attendees and exhibitors depart following four productive days of activities
RENO, Nev., March 25, 2011 — The city of Reno, Nev., brands itself as
“The Biggest Little City in the World,” and it was definitely a little
bigger this week as nearly 1,400 avionics manufacturers, dealers,
installers and other general aviation professionals gathered March
22-25 at the 54th annual Aircraft Electronics Association International
Convention & Trade Show at the Grand Sierra Resort.
“Our members reported definite signs of improved business activity,” said Paula Derks, president of the AEA. “The general aviation industry has not been immune to the economic realities facing our country and the international community. However, our member government-certified repair stations, avionics manufacturers and distributors had a very positive and productive four days networking and sharing new ideas on how to grow their businesses. The mood throughout the week was very positive across the board in our training sessions, the Exhibit Hall and our social events. The new products introduced this week are wonderful news for the general aviation industry, and I expect we will see an improved economic environment in the months ahead.”
The AEA convention is the preeminent venue dedicated solely to the general aviation avionics industry. Not open to the public, the event’s primary focus is to provide avionics professionals with educational and marketing opportunities between equipment manufacturers, distributors and government-certified repair stations. The general aviation avionics community knows the AEA International Convention & Trade Show is a must-attend gathering for growing their businesses, training their technicians and meeting with their customers.
The AEA convention moves to the East Coast next year, as the event will take place in Washington, D.C., April 3-6, 2012, at the Gaylord National Resort.
