Exhibiting at the 2017 AOPA Fly-Ins could be the best marketing investment you'll make all year! As a fly-in exhibitor in any of these four new markets, you can expect to see thousands who represent your target market, and they are hungry to see, learn, and buy. In fact, 64% of last year's fly-in visitors either bought something while at the show or planned to make a purchase from an exhibitor after the event.
Capitalize on the energy of participants from the all-day workshops and everyone arriving for the fly-in, as they gather to relax and enjoy our Exhibit Hall Happy Hour. Then, continue the conversation at our ever popular Barnstormers Party and build lasting relationships with them.
We want to maximize your opportunities to connect with attendees and make the best use of your time, while minimizing competition from high-draw events and speakers. With that in mind, the Exhibit Hall will open bright and early and remain open until shortly before the Pilot Town Hall with AOPA President Mark Baker. This allows you to focus on those peak times with attendees and then pack up to get home Saturday night.

That’s right, 14,000 excited aviation enthusiasts flooded the exhibit areas at the 2016 events, eager to immerse themselves in all things flying. Many spent hours exploring the exhibit halls and aircraft displays, poking around, asking questions, and either buying something on the spot or planning to buy later.
Want more numbers? Consider this: Over 78% of these visitors grabbed some product literature during their tour, and 70% engaged exhibitors in significant conversations about their products or services. Some took advantage of show specials, others started budgeting for major avionics upgrades, and still others formed more educated opinions about the various brands and products on display.
Putting your company's face in front of this affluent audience just makes good sense and is surprisingly affordable.
Make your presence a part of the AOPA Fly-Ins and benefit from our passionate and motivated audience. Showcase your aviation products and services, meet qualified buyers, reinforce existing customer relationships, and be seen as a leader in the industry.
Our exhibitors provide a local and national presence at each of the fly-ins, drawing thousands of visitors. Your exhibit space or sponsorship will go right alongside well-known brands and will go a long way toward putting your company top-of-mind when it comes time to buy.
