Asian Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (ABACE) is an annual event established in 2012 that attracts thousands of visitors from dozens of countries in the region and the rest of the world. It is highly focused on business aviation.

According to the NBAA, their president and CEO Ed Bolen said, "“While the Chinese government is taking commendable steps to address the Coronavirus outbreak, the current situation has presented a very challenging environment for decision-making and action for ABACE participants to fully prepare for the event. This necessary step is being taken in the spirit of partnership, collaboration and transparency."

Against this backdrop, the Singapore Airshow 2020 is about to open at the Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore, 11-16 February. Some companies have pulled out of the Singapore Airshow but as this is published the event is scheduled to go ahead.
