Apply today to be accepted as 1 of only 20 to attend the Top 20 FBO Summit 2019, in the City of London (UK), on November 8th 2019.
Dear FBO executive,
This is going to be the most energized, action packed, focused one day summit all about the FBO – which are so vitally important to the successful operation of Private and Business Aviation and to the value our customers experience.
It’s a no-hold barred summit, where we get down to the real topics in fixed-base operations, with the customer ‘at the core’ as we learn and share the latest industry developments; formulate the strategies required by FBO businesses in the future, and discuss how to drive customer satisfaction, whilst increasing sales and profitability as a combined 3-way benefit mix.
We’ll hit on every major topic relevant; including (but not limited to):
- What makes a successful FBO?
- Igniting your Marketing and Sales
- Millennial’s – how to market to them? Why do we need them?
- Operating regulation, law and requirements
- Private and Business Aviation future (relevant to FBO’s)
- The customer journey
- Operational processes
- Jet cards
- Successes, Weaknesses (if you’re brave), Opportunities, and Threats to operation of an FBO
- Pilots and Aircrew
- What do other industries offer? How do they compare?
- What next for the FBO?
- Electric Aircraft – what will change? Can we prepare today? Opportunities and more.
- Marketing channels: How many marketing channels are you using?
Here’s the thing. Nothing is off topic because as a Top 20 attendee you influence the conversation.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Are you experienced and passionate in the operation of FBO’s?
Only open to 20 people, IAPBA Top 20 events are for industry leaders, executives, professionals and decision makers within private and business aviation.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Joining you at the Top 20 FBO Summit round-table are senior decision-makers, professionals and influencers from private and business aviation worldwide.
From the global FBO network giants to the independents and most inspiring start-ups, consultants and industry experts – attending the TOP 20 summit offers an unmatched collection of business growth and success resources, advanced thinking, mastermind and networking.
By attending a TOP 20 event, you’ll benefit by advancing your thinking and you will be seen as an influencer contributing to the growth and development of your own business, as well as enhancing private and business aviation worldwide.
To ensure a high-quality event, the event is by application open to professionals operating in a Fixed Based Operations business, or contributing to FBOs in a significant way. The Summit provides the very best opportunity for you to engage in rewarding and thought provoking discussion on all things FBO that will supercharge your mind.
Our aim is that you see at least 5x, if not 20x your TOP 20 FBO Summit investment.
What are TOP 20 events?
TOP 20 summits offer an unmatched collection of private and business aviation round-table events focused on your business growth; strategy, networking, marketing and sales, industry development and support.
Organized as a round-table, limited to 20 attendees, there is a simple and obvious multiplier effect to the format of these events. A room full of smart and progressive people, exchanging information drawn from their experiences in the subject sector – focused on client experience, market drivers and outlook, marketing successes and failures, solving of problems, locating and managing vendors, and more; combined is a 19x against your own experience – providing a way to purchase progress.
There is a unique efficiency to these events. The format is round-table, everyone out and away from their regular day to day activities, away from interruptions and disruption, so you can work “on not in” your business in an idea-charged, experience-rich environment which can stimulate more clarity and actionable strategy than what might come from sixty to ninety days of normal day-to-day activity.
For many, such an environment enables the ideas to come so fast they struggle to keep pace in noting down one idea to another – when you are in such an environment that charges the part of the mind that produces ideas, strategies and enables meaningful discussion exploring beyond the regular conversation.
Then, there is internal competition. In a group like this, no one wants to be seen as the “laggard”. Everybody wants to contribute and be seen as THE subject authority, the biggest and the best. That’s good for you – it stimulates everybody to do more, to implement more, to get smarter and to bring more.
We do actively encourage contribution, the aim is to keep the conversation flowing, with a focus to produce actional improvement and benefits to your business, and to the FBO community worldwide.
For many such an environment enables the ideas to come so fast they struggle to keep pace as they make note to note of one idea to another – when you are in such an environment that charges the mind to produce ideas, strategies and the catalyst to enable meaningful discussion exploring beyond standard conversation.
Remember: the FBO summit is limited to 20 attendees, once the places are gone, they are gone, apply today!

A note from our executive chairman:
I understand that there is competition between brands, between companies – at certain locations, for a wider share of the market. BUT when we work together to make the experience of the customer our FBO’s better, it’s helps the wider industry and everyone present.
Wouldn’t that be a great thing, to have the feeling that not only have you benefited your own business, but also 1 of only 20 at your event that helped improve and shape your sector.
I guarantee we will discuss the topics that matter, that we will focus to YOUR business and experiences, and in turn learn from each other. If you take just ONE thing from the other attendees, that up to 19 ideas you can consider to make to your own business.
At IAPBA we are passionate about Private and Business Aviation. We want to actively work with our members to continually improve the image and value of private and business aviation worldwide – so that we can encourage more people, companies and governments to the benefits of using private and business aircraft.
Let’s drive to build even better businesses, by focusing on what matters most – our customer – with the idea that when they benefit from private and business aviation, we in turn benefit and enjoy our businesses, and working in this industry even more.
I look forward to seeing you at one of our five TOP 20 events, you will be one of only one hundred people to walk through our doors, that I work with to push the boundaries of providing excellence in customer services and experience, in marketing your business and improvements to operational efficiency – and in-turn make a REAL difference to the industry, and your own bottom line.
That’s also great for the CV and for your career. As part of your attendance you can download the ‘TOP 20 Contributor to Private and Business Aviation’ icon for your web site, and marketing.
I look forward to meeting you.
