BOCA RATON, Fla., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PBExpo, the newest aviation, aerospace and defense parts procurement and service industries tradeshow, announces today that GlobalParts.aero, the industry's fastest growing certified distributor, manufacturer, and MRO provider, is the pioneer sponsor for the inaugural show in 2018. GlobalParts.aero is the first company to declare a sponsorship, committing to be a Platinum Sponsor, the highest level for the first-time show.
PBExpo is the newest venture for parent company, PartsBase Inc., the world's largest online aviation, aerospace and defense marketplace. Currently, PartsBase has 7,500 member companies, accessing the online portal in over 194 countries. The addition of a live, interactive tradeshow, will provide members, buyers and sellers in the aviation parts procurement industry, the opportunity to conduct face-to-face business dealings, as well as participate in continued education about the marketplace and networking opportunities.
GlobalParts.aero, which was founded in 2003, has evolved from a parts distribution service into an established industry leader in repair, overhaul, manufacturing and worldwide support of aircraft ranging from personally-flown piston singles to transport category jets. GlobalParts.aero is the factory-designated parts source for Bombardier Learjet models ranging from the 20 series through the Learjet 60. GlobalParts Group now includes two ISO 9001+AS9100C and Federal Aviation Administration-certified repair stations, and in-house, build-to-print part manufacturing capabilities.
"We are thrilled to announce GlobalParts.aero as the first sponsor of the inaugural PBExpo, and even more excited they have claimed the top-level sponsorship," says Greg Schmidt, President of PartsBase. "GlobalParts.aero has been a loyal member of PartsBase for more than 14 years. Most recently, they have expanded their PartsBase offering to include their newest subsidiaries GlobalParts Aero Services and GlobalParts Aero Structures. As PartsBase enters a new venture in the aviation tradeshow market, we are pleased to continue expanding the relationship with their commitment to a PBExpo Platinum Sponsorship."
"GlobalParts.aero's business began as a source of parts so our roots are planted in this important segment of the aviation industry," notes Malissa Nesmith, Chief Operating Officer of GlobalParts.aero. "It makes perfect sense for us to not only participate in, but sponsor PBExpo since our long-standing relationship with PartsBase has been an important and beneficial contributor to our growth and success. We became members of PartsBase during our very first year of operation and are extremely pleased to have a significant role in this inaugural PBExpo."
PBExpo will be held May 16 – 17, 2018 at the Greater Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale and will include an expansive exhibit hall, keynote presentation, educational seminars and networking events. In addition to being an open venue to all companies who buy, sell, manufacture or repair aircraft parts, PBExpo will also host companies involved in B2B or B2C ecommerce and technology solutions. Throughout the show, PartsBase members will benefit from User Group sessions focused on maximizing the user's online investment and providing new resources to expand a business enterprise. Florida is home to over 1,500 aviation related companies state-wide.
