Flight Daily News's sister publication is the Flight Evening
. Launched at the 2004 National Business
(NBAA) convention in Las Vegas, it was a
new concept in air show daily newspapers. Traditionally, show
dailies have appeared in the morning, covering the happenings of
the previous day. Flight Evening News
published instead on
the same day.
Journalists cover stories from press conferences, the exhibition
floor and static display throughout the morning. The newspaper is
designed and printed in a matter of hours, and handed delegates
leaving the show late that afternoon. Flight Evening News
is the only daily publication to follow this format, and it markets
the information it provides as "today's news today".
Flight Evening News
can be found at NBAA, as well as its
European equivalent, the European Business Associations' Convention
and Exhibition (EBACE).
