Post event commentary – EBACE 2019

The curtain has closed on the annual Geneva gathering of the Business Aviation world known as EBACE.

For three days, from Tuesday 21 May to Thursday 23 May 2019, EBACE brought together 13,000 business aviation professionals from Europe and around the world at Geneva’s magnificent Palexpo where over 400 Exhibitors showcased their latest products and services.

Our representatives, Alex Beetham and Nigel Carter, joined thousands of business aviation professionals at the event where they discussed how the industry is evolving. With topics ranging from safety to sustainability, from operational efficiencies to emerging technologies, this edition of EBACE revealed changing requirements and addressed the future of aviation in Europe and across the Globe.

“For aviation professionals, enthusiasts and business jet buyers alike, EBACE is a must-attend Show. Every year the industry exhibits the very best and newest of aviation innovation, allowing you to get close and learn more about the latest trends and requirements”, Alex said.

“Business aviation continues to change right before our eyes and the future is about speed as well as the reduction and offset of emissions, which can be a very difficult balancing act.  A trend the aviation industry is promoting is that their owners are getting younger and younger, meaning that private aviation is being embraced earlier in a person’s life”.

“Another interesting thing is that over the course of the Show, conversations have extended beyond the aviation world, into how the luxury assets are owned and administered and how the owners can use the services of firms like our own to manage multiple and complex cross-border assets, to navigate tax and regulatory issues and to plan for both their wealth and their businesses”, Nigel added.

“With offices located in the Isle of Man, Malta, Monaco, Geneva, London and Hong Kong, we are ideally positioned in some of the world’s leading financial jurisdictions for luxury asset owners. We have extensive experience in our field and can offer advice on a diverse range of structures as well as assistance in the establishment and development of solutions which yield success, and which are also suitable to niche sectors such as the aviation, property and yachting industries.”
