EAN, the Lagos-based fully integrated business aviation company confirmed today that the third Nigerian Business Aviation Conference, NBAC 2016 will take place on 24-25th March 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria.
NBAC 2016 will once again be hosted by Segun Demuren
Given the success of the past two conferences, 2016 will also consist of a two-day meeting where delegates can debate and network with each other discussing the hot topics relating to the sector. The main objective of the conference is to continue raising awareness of the growing industry and to provide a forum for all stakeholders to exchange views. The last NBAC event brought together over 200 international and African delegates from across the broad spectrum of business aviation, and it is anticipated that NBAC 2016 will once again attract HNWIs, OEMs, operators, financiers, lawyers, regulatory bodies and industry leaders.
Segun Demuren, CEO of EAN, founder and host of the symposium comments: “We were extremely pleased with the success of last year’s event and realised that a two day event, which reflects a more expansive programme thoroughly debating the increasingly complex nature of the business, is necessary. Nigeria is one of the largest business aviation users in Africa which is why the conference is important to all those that are operating or looking to operate in the region.
It is anticipated key themes will include Nigerian Business Aviation’s new regulations and how they affect operations; links between fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft in the energy market; the future of business aviation in Nigeria and the importance of maintaining connections between major cities including Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt. These and other topics will combine to underpin the overall conference theme which will focus on how to create a better understanding of the value of business aviation in Nigeria, its’ importance as an economic driver for the region, and its contribution to developing international business. EAN is inviting stakeholders and sponsors with an interest in the region to register their interest in participating at the conference as soon as possible.
The event is also welcomed by the African Business Aviation Association, AfBAA. Part of AfBAA’s strategy going forward is to support individual country forums by supporting members arranging local aviation events as exemplified by NBAC.
EAN has a number of sponsorship opportunities available for the event and companies interested in developments in this sector should contact Adedayo Olawuyi [email protected] Telephone: +23 4129 50960 or +234 8022 000833.
