Changes Based On Suggestions From Visitors, Exhibitors
You're probably thinking about Wisconsin rather than Florida right about now, but the organizers of the 2013 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo say they plan to introduce a new event layout when the Expo opens January 17-20, 2013, thanks to input from exhibitors and visitors.
“During Expo 2012, we surveyed exhibitors and visitors formally and informally, and we received several suggestions for improving the event," said Expo director Jana Filip. "The result is a more organized event layout that we believe will be more accommodating for visitors and exhibitors and create a traffic flow that will assure guests visit every area of the Expo.”
The redesigned layout will bring more activity to the flightline area and, thereby, more attention to the daily manufacturer showcase flights. The Food Court will be relocated between the Indoor Exhibit Tents, with both indoor and outdoorseating available. The AeroShell hospitality tent also will be relocated adjacent to the Food Court, with an additional picnic area closer to the Flightline.“This arrangement will place the concessions in a location that’s more accessible for exhibitors and will keep visitors engaged in the central area of the event,” Filip said. “It also moves the Exhibitor Support Office to a more convenient location for exhibitors.”
Opening and closing ceremonies and other special activities taking place during thefour-day event will all be centrally located in or near the AeroShell Hospitality Tent.
The new layout also will provide more area for prominent sponsors and include enlarged Premier Partner exhibit spaces that will accommodate multiple aircraft as well as “offices on wheels,” Filip said.
The 9th annual event, focused on light-sport aircraft, will again take place at the Sebring Regional Airport (KSEF), in Sebring, Florida.
A map of the new event layout will be available for review during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.
