PartnerShip recently exhibited at NBAA2015 in Las Vegas. Held November 17th through the 19th, NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition showcased the industry’s vitality and relevance. The show featured over 1,100 exhibitors, taking up 2/3rds of the Las Vegas Convention Center and part of the Henderson Executive Airport. The more than 27,000 attendees enjoyed educational and networking sessions, special guests (including Dirks Bentley and Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger), product announcements, indoor and outdoor static displays, and much more!

As the company that manages the NBAA Shipping Program, PartnerShip always looks forward to this show as a way to connect with members, see what’s happening in the industry, and save members money on shipping. PartnerShip set up shop right next to the Innovation Zone, one of the most exciting parts of the show, which featured sessions on everything from the future of planes and flying, to flight deck connectivity issues to developments in "detect and avoid" technology for unmanned aircraft systems. In that space, we provided information on the shipping program, enrolled members in the program, and collected information from attendees to win a FedEx Model Plane! We had close to 200 entries for the plane but there can only be one winner….congratulations to Bruce from Golf Cart Connection! Thank you to everyone who entered and better luck next year at NBAA2016!

NBAA has put together some great recap information on the conference, including a press release that details all of the show highlights. We picked out one to share in this post – the NBAA2015 Video Minute below which provides a great overview of the sights and sounds of the show.

I was disappointed with the FED EX store in the convention center charging an additional $20 to ship some materials from the show to my company, because it was related to the NBAA convention.
Instead of a convention discount, we got charged an additional 25%. Absurd!


PartnerShip says:

Hi Thomas,
We're sorry to hear about the additional charges you experienced from FedEx. We have found that it is very common for FedEx Office and UPS Store locations in convention centers to charge an additional handling fee to ship packages. Some charge a flat fee, others have a tiered system based on weight. To avoid paying this additional fee, you can ship from a location offsite from the convention center, or from your hotel. However, we will caution that some hotels are starting to hop on the bandwagon and charge fees to guests for shipping and receiving packages.

We hope this advice helps you at future shows! We would also encourage you to enroll in the NBAA Shipping Program to be sure you are saving as much as possible on your small package and freight shipments!
