It’s time to make plans for the 2024 General Assembly Legislative Session and secure your exhibit space at the Aviation, Aerospace and Advanced Air Mobility Legislative Reception.
We host 450+ attendees from across the Commonwealth at Main Street Station. With more than 48,000 square feet of exhibit space, our sponsors can display large exhibits and interactive demonstrations. Sponsors and guests will also enjoy the drone demonstrations,
The VABA Legislative Reception is one of the best-attended events by members of Virginia's General Assembly. Sponsors and attendees have an opportunity to network with decision-makers from across the Commonwealth. By becoming a sponsor, you will have the space needed to truly demonstrate what you do best.
Sponsors at the Diamond level and above can maximize their exposure by taking advantage of the entrance areas to display stand-up banners. This comes as one of the many brand-enhancing benefits of a sponsorship.
The Annual Aviation, Aerospace and UAS Legislative Reception held on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, was an enormous success.
Thank you to everyone in attendance!
