Companies Selling to Exhibitors
If you’re approached by companies that are selling to you – as an exhibitor – on the NAAA Trade Show floor, please let me, Randy Hardy or Bob Bailey know onsite as we do not allow this. You can email me at lbarber@agaviation.org if you do not see us walking around the floor. 


Five reasons to exhibit at the 2016 NAAA Convention & Exposition:
  1. The world’s largest targeted audience of purchasers of ag aviation equipment, parts and services will be attending the convention and will have the opportunity to obtain more information about your company and products.
  2. You can educate the attendees about your products and/or services. Show a demonstration or give away a sample or a takeaway (if applicable).
  3. Exhibiting enhances your company’s credibility and commitment to what you are offering.
  4. Networking with attendees on the trade show floor will generate new sales and/or leads and potential business partnerships for your company. You can visit with current customers to ensure a strong relationship and you will walk away with new contacts and very likely sales.
  5. Raise awareness about your company.
