NAAA 51st Annual Convention & Exposition - National Agricultural Aviation Association






Event Overview:

Each December NAAA hosts the world’s largest agricultural aviation convention and trade show.

You won’t find a better opportunity to stay up on the latest technology, products, techniques and trends impacting your business.

The NAAA Annual Convention & Exhibition, featuring the world’s largest trade show for agricultural aviation, has great opportunities for networking, and a dynamic lineup of speakers and events.

Exhibitor Information:

Exhibiting at the NAAA Trade Show allows you to get your company name, products and services in front 1,200+ attendees.

Five reasons why you should be an exhibitor at the NAAA Convention & Exposition:

The world’s largest targeted audience of purchasers of ag aviation equipment, parts and services will be attending the convention and will have the opportunity to obtain more information about your company and products.

You can educate the attendees about your products and/or services. Show a demonstration or give away a sample or a takeaway (if applicable).

Exhibiting enhances your company’s credibility and commitment to what you are offering.

Networking with attendees on the trade show floor will generate new sales and/or leads and potential business partnerships for your company. You can visit with current customers to ensure a strong relationship and you will walk away with new contacts and very likely sales.

Raise awareness about your company.

About NAAA:

The National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA), founded in 1966, represents approximately 1,800 members in 46 states. NAAA supports the interests of small business owners and pilots licensed as professional commercial aerial applicators who use aircraft to enhance food, fiber and bio-fuel production, protect forestry and control health-threatening pests. NAAA provides networking, educational, government relations, public relations, recruiting and informational services to its members and the aerial application industry as a whole. NAAA also works with its partner organizations, the National Agricultural Aviation Research & Education Foundation (NAAREF) and the Women’s National Agricultural Aviation Association (WNAAA), to provide research and educational programs focused on enhancing the efficacy, security and safety of aerial application, and to communicate to the public the importance of aerial application to agriculture, forestry and the public welfare.
