LEE'S SUMMIT, MISSOURI, Dec. 15, 2020 -- The Aircraft Electronics Association has moved the dates of its 64th annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show to June 22-25, 2021. The event will take place at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
"The health and well-being of attendees and exhibitors is our top priority," said AEA President and CEO Mike Adamson. "In consultation with hotel and health officials in Dallas, we have decided to move the event dates to allow more time for COVID-19 vaccinations and for the possibility of fewer travel restrictions. We will continue to work with our hotel partner to ensure that we can meet safely by following established protocols along with guidance from the CDC and local government."
All convention attendee registrations and exhibitor contracts previously transacted will be automatically moved to the new dates, and no further action is required.
Attendees and exhibitors who made reservations at the Hilton Anatole in the AEA room block for mid-March should note that the hotel will close those reservations and refund deposits to the credit card used to make the reservation. This hotel policy is designed to help ensure the correct arrival and departure dates are secured for all attendees in June.
