In order to keep the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) here in Geneva’s Palais d’Expositions, show organizers have shifted the indoor exhibits from Hall 7 to the larger Hall 6 because the event has outgrown its former home. Hall 7 is not large enough to accommodate this year’s record amount of exhibit space–1,183 standard three-square-meter booth spaces (a total area of more than 38,200 sq ft).
Starting tomorrow through Friday, the sixth annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) will showcase hundreds of products from around the world, occupying nearly 237,000 sq ft of exhibit space at the Geneva Palexpo. At nearby Geneva International Airport, more than 50 business aircraft will be on static display.
