About 600 busi­ness avi­a­tion pro­fes­sion­als are ex­pected to at­tend the two-day con­ven­tion, known as busi­ness avi­a­tion’s big­gest event.

“We are de­lighted to wel­come Canada’s busi­ness avi­a­tion lead­ers to the Water­loo Re­gion,” said Chris Wood, air­port gen­eral man­ager in a re­lease. “Busi­ness avi­a­tion is an im­por­tant part of our air­port com­mu­nity, and a crit­i­cal as­set for many of the com­pa­nies head­quar­tered in the re­gion. We are very pleased that we are able to show these in­flu­en­tial lead­ers our dy­namic com­mu­nity and fa­cil­i­ties.”
