BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - April 29, 2016) - Attendees at the annual Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles, California will have a unique opportunity to tour the impressive full-scale mock-up of Bombardier's innovative Global 7000 business jet. The life-size mock-up, which will be displayed adjacent to the conference headquarters at the Beverly Hilton Hotel from May 1-4, 2016, showcases the aircraft's stylish and precedent-setting four-zone interior. This is the first time an aircraft mock-up has been displayed at the conference.

The four-day conference will attract more than 3,500 prominent business leaders, politicians, philanthropists, scientists and scholars from around the world and will feature over 700 speakers. Delegates will explore the role of financial tools and policy in creating strong societies and devise solutions aimed at widening global access to capital, creating jobs and improving health care and education. Bombardier has been a sponsor of the conference for the past nine years.

"The Milken Institute Global Conference is the ideal venue to showcase an aircraft that will revolutionize the business jet experience, enhancing how companies, governments and individuals connect," said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We developed this breakthrough design by consulting business leaders from around the world and asking ourselves, 'What if?' It's the same question that the leading minds at this conference are asking: they reimagine what's possible and then map out innovative ways to achieve it."

Global 7000 aircraft: The first and only business jet to offer four unique living spaces, the Global 7000 aircraft will set the standard for a new category of large business jets, providing unmatched performance, flexibility, and comfort. The state-of-the-art Global 7000 aircraft will feature a wing that optimizes both short-field and high-speed, long-range performance, coupled with highly efficient engines, the largest cabin and the most advanced cockpit.
