Last month members of the TLG Aerospace leadership team traveled to Las Vegas to attend the National Business Aviation Association Business Aviation Conference and Expedition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas. Attending this year’s event was President Steve Muenzberg, Director of Engineering Robert Lind, Director of Program Management Steve Nelson, and Program Manager and Marketing Lead Joseph Cutler. While TLG has attended this event many times in the past, this was the first time exhibiting at the event. We were also featured in the publication “Aviation Business Daily”, which was widely distributed at the conference. As a first-time exhibitor, our booth was given the privilege of being centrally located and allowed us an excellent opportunity to meet and greet numerous individuals from around the industry that we had never met before.
Planning for the Future
As well as meeting many new faces, we were also grateful to have the opportunity to speak with numerous previous and current partners and discuss exciting plans for the future. With all of the growth happening in the industry, we were truly on our feet all day and engaged in numerous in-depth discussions that have us very excited about 2020. As much as email and phone calls are a great way to check in, it truly was a wonderful chance to be to meet with industry partners. All this face to face time within the span of only a few days is something we look forward to every year. Viva Las Vegas!
But when you are in Vegas, it is never all work and no play. Some of the keynote speakers at the event were Earvin “Magic” Johnson and Ross Perot, Jr. The team also had a great time checking out the many wonderful static displays and other exhibits. Some of the highlights were the Personal Aircraft Vehicles (PAVs) and the beautiful Pilatus Aircraft on display at the conference center. Robert Lind and Steve Nelson also spent some time checking out the static displays at the Henderson Executive Airport on the last day of the conference. During the tour of the airfield, Robert Lind couldn’t help but take some notes on possible aerodynamic improvements that could be made to some of the aircraft on display. Once it is in your blood, it’s in your blood…
Overall the conference was a great time to bond as a team, meet with new and existing partners and learn about the current state of the business aviation industry. We can’t wait for next year in Orlando!
