The annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show is the largest gathering of general aviation avionics manufacturers, distributors and government-certified repair stations in the world. It also is the platform of choice for the introduction of new avionics products and services coming to the marketplace.
The AEA Convention is the preeminent venue dedicated solely to the general aviation avionics industry. The event's primary focus is providing avionics professionals with educational and marketing opportunities between equipment manufacturers, distributors and government-certified repair stations. The general aviation avionics community knows the AEA Convention is a must-attend gathering for growing their businesses, training their technicians and meeting with their dealer network.
A unique opportunity to connect with manufacturers, distributors, technicians and business leaders as we shape the future of avionics together.
Attendees can choose from more than 75 hours of regulatory, technical and business management training and professional development.
The AEA International Convention is the place to be to learn about the latest regulatory issues impacting your business.
Attendees save time and money by networking with hundreds of qualified decision-makers face-to-face in the AEA Exhibit Hall. In this new world of social media, this is your chance to see, touch and talk product in person.

Health and Safety
When the avionics industry reunites in Dallas, it will do so by following health guidelines and safety protocols designed to protect the well-being of convention attendees, exhibitors and hotel staff. The Aircraft Electronics Association encourages each individual to make an attendance decision based upon their own situation and comfort level. Please check the Health and Safety page often for updates as conditions change and new information becomes available.
Photo Use Permission
Any person who attends an AEA event grants permission to the AEA, its employees and agents to record his or her images, including, but not limited to, photographs, digital images, voices, sound or video recordings, audio clips, or accompanying written descriptions, and, without notifying such person, to use his or her name and such images for any purpose of the AEA, including advertisements for the AEA and its programs.
The Aircraft Electronics Association (show management) is making preparations for its upcoming AEA International Convention & Trade Show and doing its best to help exhibitors have a successful show. While all convention attendees are invited to the trade show, any attendee who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public places, including another company’s booth, is in violation of the AEA’s suitcasing policy and will be asked to leave immediately. Additional penalties may be applied.
Beware of unauthorized groups offering email lists!
As is common in connection with large conventions and aviation industry events, there often are unauthorized groups contacting AEA Trade Show exhibitors and others, offering email lists of attendees and other contacts. The AEA does not sell or offer its lists of exhibitors and attendees to any such group; these offers are not legitimate. Please beware of these offers if you receive them.
