European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) is the largest tradeshow for business aviation in Europe and one of the largest globally. Swiss Re Corporate Solutions couldn't have missed the opportunity to promote its aviation insurance capabilities among the largest companies in the aviation industry!
EBACE took place from 22 to 24 May at Palexpo Exhibition center in Geneva. About 13,000 aviation professionals and over 500 companies from around the world joined the trade show.
The last two years Corporate Solutions sponsored EBACE shuttle bus and internet kiosk. This year our aviation team agreed that it was time to have a bigger and bolder presence at the trade show with a booth.
Corporate Solutions' aviation team and Switzerland sales team had more than a hundred meetings at our booth during the duration of the show and as a conclusion we can surely say that it was a very successful first at EBACE 2017!
Day 1: On Monday, 22 May in the morning, just after opening EBACE with a key-note speech, B. Piccard, founder and chairman of the Solar Impulse project, visited our booth where he met and greeted our clients and signed official Solar Impulse merchandise!
Day 2: On Tuesday, 23 May at 9AM our clients had the opportunity to start their day with our aviation team during a network breakfast session. Oliver Dlugosch, Head Aerospace spoke to our guests about "Aviation insurance-flying too close to the sun?".
