NBAA Regional Houston 2019
Houston, TX, March 19, 2019 – This year Mike Townsend, VP of Sales, and Chris Allison, Regional Sales Manager, attended the one day show in Houston Texas. The exhibitors were located in a large hangar which is owned by one of our very good customers, Million Air. There was a static display of various aircraft right outside the hangar on the tarmac.
Our goal was to educate potential new customers to the services offered by Global Parts Group and to meet with existing customers to explore additional support opportunities. We were looking to expand our Bombardier support as well as our two repair stations, Global Parts Aero Services and Global Parts Aero Structures.
We had a good booth location and, combined with our giveaways, we had a fair amount of customers visit the booth. We visited with multiple customers including Jet Brokers, Western Airways, Bauer Aviation, Elliot Aviation, Million Air, Challenger Aviation and Conoco Phillips. These were in addition to the calls that Chris made in South Texas in the days leading up to the trade show which made it a successful week.
The show attendance was light in the morning until the Houston rush hour was over and then it began to pick up quite a bit. Overall the show was quite good but after looking at our competitors’ booths we feel that we need to refresh our pop-up booth, which seemed dated compared to many we saw.
We greatly enjoyed meeting with our customers and vendors at the show and we look forward to continuing these successful relationships in the future!
