This story is part of AIN's continuing coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on aviation.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Canadian Business Aviation Association has canceled its annual convention and exhibit, CBAA 2020, which was scheduled to be held in Toronto from June 16 to 18. “Given the uncertainty around when we can expect a recovery [from Covid-19], we have decided to delay the event for a full year and plan to reconvene in Toronto at Skyservice, June 15 to 17, 2021—CBAA’s 60th anniversary,” the trade group said this week.

“We are proud to be part of an incredibly resilient aviation sector, and we are still very much committed to bringing the business aviation community together,” it continued. The association will still hold its legally-required annual general meeting on June 17, but via a virtual platform.

Additionally, CBAA said it is also exploring holding a “hybrid online ‘mini-convention’ with presentations and speakers that will keep our industry informed and engaged.”
