Historically, the aviation-oriented individuals who organize and conduct air shows are relatively well-versed in aviation safety. Often, the bigger challenge is focusing on less familiar issues: concessions and ticketing, volunteer management, marketing, finance and sponsorship solicitation, to name a few. This workshop has been developed to address those business issues, and to provide air show event organizers -- both newbies and veterans -- with a thorough introduction to the business issues that have such an out-sized impact on the success of your event.

Developed and taught by veteran experts in the field and refined continuously during the last two decades, Air Shows 102 will help you navigate the myriad business and event planning issues that you will face as an air show event organizer. Air Shows 102 offers presentations by North America's most respected air show event organizers, sharing business models from small, mid-size and large events to illustrate best practices in the field of air show management. The course is designed especially for event organizers from new or small shows as well as newly assigned officers and enlisted personnel taking on significant air show business responsibilities for the first time. And because so many of you also have responsibilities for the air/ground operations aspect of your show, we've scheduled this course so as not to conflict with Air Shows 101, giving you the opportunity to attend both.

The fee for Air Shows 102: Business Basics Workshop (Parts 1 & 2 inclusive) is $295 until November 16 and $320 after November 16. This workshop is not included in your convention registration fee.
