COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Ohio Aviation Association (OAA) will hold its 2019 Annual Conference – the only aviation conference in Ohio – April 9-10 at the Hilton Polaris Hotel in Columbus.
“Building Something Better,” this year’s theme, is laced throughout programming focused on cultivating the future workforce, sustainable environmental practices, air service development and more. With speakers ranging from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to engineering consultants and major tourist attraction leaders to legislative advocates, the program is suited for all aviation enthusiasts and professionals.
“Aviation is a fundamental building block for the state economy,” said Stacey Heaton, Executive Director of the Ohio Aviation Association. “Bringing the aviation community together to share ideas and learn from one another helps our industry to continue building something better. This opportunity allows airports to advance the state and continue to be an economic engine in the communities which we live.”
A new addition to the annual conference is a gallery featuring cutting-edge technologies, tools, policies, construction programs and student projects on display over the course of the conference. Aviation company exhibitors from across the state will also be on hand to discuss products and services with attendees.
In 2018, over 260 airport executives, engineering consultants, small businesses, aviation students, contractors and other aviation professionals attended the annual event. OAA expects an even bigger turnout for 2019.
