June 18, 2014 - The 11th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo at Sebring Regional Airport, Florida, will open one day earlier than in years past and will now run from Wednesday, January 14, through Saturday, January 17, 2015.
“We’ve observed that attendance on Sunday traditionally has been lower than other exhibit days, and our survey results indicated our visitors from around the country like to fly home on Sunday,” said Expo Director Jana Filip. “So, amending our dates seemed like the best way to offer a better event for both our exhibitors and our visitors…and it’s good for our volunteers, too.”
With about 20 additional exhibitor spaces available in 2015, Filip confirmed the Expo will again offer extra benefits to exhibitors who enter into partner or sponsorship agreements with the Expo. Contracts for the 2015 event are currently in the mail to previous exhibitors.
New this year and returning in 2015, the Expo will offer onsite overnight camping for homebuilt aircraft as well as special display parking space for owners to showcase their aircraft. “We’re delighted to welcome homebuilders to our event,” Filip said. “We know they have many similar product needs as owners of light-sport aircraft, so the Expo is a great place for homebuilders to shop as well.”
In the new event format setup day will be Tuesday, January 13, with an Exhibitor Appreciation Gathering to be held that evening. Visit the Sebring website for more information.
