Aviation Business Strategies Group will facilitate the 12th annual NATA FBO Success Seminar in Savannah, Ga., March 26-27.

This year's seminar will be held at the Embassy Suites in Savannah's historic district. A dinner cruise along the Savannah River and networking event is scheduled for March 26. 

The goal of the seminar is to help FBOs learn and adopt winning strategies by focusing on four aspects of improving their operation: maximizing profits, reducing expenses, creating a better customer experience and improving bottom-line performance, ABSG principals John Enticknap and Ron Jackson said. For each seminar, ABSG updates the curriculum and adds new content to keep pace with current FBO industry trends.

"The FBO Success Seminar offers a professional training program that is well received by our member companies and other industry attendees who have reported success in their operations after adopting strategies taught in the seminar," National Air Transportation Association managing director, safety and training, Mike France said.

"I've been to the FBO Success Seminar twice, and using the tactics and strategies learned, we've seen a dramatic increase in profitability for the company," Troy Hyberger, manager, FBO services, at Duncan Aviation, said. "The FBO Success Seminar is the only seminar being offered for FBO owners and managers that focuses on profitability and the customer experience as well as finding the right balance that works for you. If you follow the steps, you will be successful."

ABSG originally developed the concept and curriculum for the seminar in 2008 making it the longest running NATA professional development program. Since the initial seminar held onboard a cruise ship, more than 300 FBO owners, operators, managers and supervisors have attended the seminar. Many return for additional training. 

NATA FBO Success Seminar registration can be done on the NATA web site.
