Aviation Business Consultants International (ABCI) has been selected as the marketing firm for the second annual Aero Expo Panama Pacifico (AEPP) event to be held in Panama City, Panama.
“The Latin American market has been growing dramatically,” said Paula Williams, President of ABCI. “And the AEPP event is a proven concept and a great location – Yvan Boniface and his team were very successful in their first year without much marketing, and they were able to attract some very impressive exhibitors and sponsors, including Dassault, Embraer, Pilatus, Textron Aviation (Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker are under the Textron umbrella) Million Air, Rockwell Collins and many others. That just proves the market is ready, the location is ideal, and we’re delighted to be a part of it and are planning for some impressive growth this year.”
Williams cited IATA’s figures that air transport supports more than 4.9 million jobs and counts for $153 billion in GDP in Latin America.
Yvan Boniface, organizer of the event, said “We wanted to build on the success of the AEPP 2016 and muscle up the marketing of the expo with a more professional touch. We found in ABCI a great team, organized, resourceful, extremely experienced within our industry, and offering a custom made solution to promote our event on a broad scale. The perfect match for us as we realized how important it is for our visitors and exhibitors to reach a large audience. We are confident that with ABCI as our aviation marketing firm, the AEPP 2017 will deliver an even larger and more diverse group than last year, for an exceptional networking experience. ”
Last year’s event included six aircraft on display, 25 exhibitors including one original equipment manufacturer (OEM), worldwide and local FBOs, fuel providers, and a maintenance and repair organization (MRO.) Attendees included more than 500 visitors from 15 countries.
Exhibitor registration for the event will be open in mid-December. More information can be obtained from the event website, http://aeroexpo-panama.com or by searching “Aero Expo Panama” or the hashtag “#AEPP17” on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.
