Dear AsBAA members,

We have been in close interaction with NBAA for the past several months. As part of the process to organize ABACE, AsBAA & NBAA have coordinated with 3 famous Aeronautical Universities in China to hold the Student Day Program – ABACE 2014. Please refer to the notification and agenda as below for more info.

We, as AsBAA members, have this unique opportunity to propose your thoughts on experts from China (or the broader Asian region) who can speak on these topics as below. If you are also interested in being a panelist for any of the topics attached, please include it in your response. Let’s fill the agenda with speakers and topics soon.

We also need to find the 2- 3 Exhibitors in door, and the exhibitors could speak to the students about their products/ service, which will allow the students to get a understanding about the business aviation company. Please let me know if you would like to sponsor this.

Thank you for your support to improve the Student Day Program with CSR, and We invite the medias to advocate the outstanding public program during 2014 ABACE.

Please provide your information by next Tuesday (April 8th ) if you are interested by emailing to Cindy.
