The seventh European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, which took place in Geneva in May, broke all records, with attendance up 15 percent from the 2006 event to more than 11,000 and 354 exhibitors, an 18-percent increase. Orders inked at the show-firm and optional-had a total value of nearly $1.7 billion. The 2008 convention is scheduled for May 20 to 22, again at Geneva International Airport's Palexpo venue.

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
