5th ANNUAL FLIGHTSIMCON ANNOUNCES INITIAL SPONSORS, EXHIBITORS FOR 2017 EVENT
WINDSOR LOCKS, CT, USA - February 6, 2017 - FlightSimCon 2017, the largest annual aviation and flight simulation conference, is proud to announce the first round of sponsors and exhibitors for the 2017 event. The conference, which is now in its fifth year, takes place on Saturday and Sunday, June 10 & 11, at the Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley International Airport, just outside of Hartford, Connecticut. The event is for all ages, and is the largest flight simulation and aviation conference held in the United States. Last year, the conference attracted more than 500 pilots, students, air traffic controllers, and simulation enthusiasts from around the world.
"The early interest from sponsors and exhibitors so far this year has been amazing," said event volunteer Evan Reiter. "Attendees should expect another great turnout with exhibitors from across the industry" he continued.
The conference is pleased to once again be partnered with top-tier sponsor Orbx Simulation Systems, who will not only have a large exhibit set up on the ground floor of the conference, but will also be sponsoring the social event on Saturday evening. Other sponsors include SimMarket, JustPlanes, GoFlight Technologies, PILOT’s, Fly Tampa and Big Fat Simulations. In addition, the conference has partnered with PC Pilot Magazine, FlightSim.Com, and AirDailyX, who will all be attending and covering the event.
Within the first month of registration, the conference has already confirmed the following exhibitors in addition to Orbx: GoFlight Technologies, Aerosoft/Laminar Research, PILOT’s, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, Boston Virtual ARTCC, VATSIM, IVAO, Javiator, EasternHops, QualityWings, FS Flight Control and Just Flight. New exhibitors are being added all the time. Keep an eye on the conference website and Facebook/Twitter for updates about new exhibitors.
Many exhibitors will feature hands-on demonstrations, and attendees will be encouraged to try out many different hardware and software products. The conference will also be welcoming back a home simulator built out of a real Cessna 172 fuselage -- featuring working gauges and flight controls -- that attendees can try out for themselves. As always, the conference will also feature an exciting line up of speakers and presentations.
