We are days away from the official start of one of the biggest business aviation events of the year, ABACE 2015!
ABACE, set to run April 14–16 in Shanghai, China, has proven to be a high-value event, attracting entrepreneurs, wealth creators, aircraft-purchase decision makers and other high-level attendees from China and across Asia. In recent years past, attendee registrations were up more than 30 percent.
Major figures in government and the industry are also key participants in each ABACE. Previous years’ events included a presentation from U.S. Department of Transportation Deputy Secretary John D. Porcari, and a welcoming of Gary Locke, U.S. ambassador to China, and Roberto Kobeh Gonzalez, president of the council of the International Civil Aviation Organization, as well as the expansion of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) ABACE member participation to host the China Business Aviation Symposium, a day-long forum dedicated to discussions about the expansion of business aviation in the region.
Ming Keadle, our Senior Vice President, will be venturing to Shanghai, China next week to attend ABACE 2015 to meet with current clients and prospects, as well as take in all that the event has to offer. If you happen to see her, make sure to say hello!
Ming’s introduction to private aviation began when she took her first aerobatic flight. Her joy of flying blossomed, and she has since combined her enthusiasm and expertise in international business with a passion for private jets sales.
Ming is fluent in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and all major Chinese dialects. Her relationships and experience in China, Japan, South Korea and other Asian countries will help CFS customers expand their reach and opportunities in the exponentially growing Asia-Pacific aviation market.
