  • Chapters/Young Eagles: Previously in two buildings along Knapp Street Road, Chapters and Young Eagles can now be found west of the Welcome Center in a building that was occupied by the EAA Sweepstakes for the past several years.
  • Main Plaza Stage: The stage moved off the northwest corner of Phillips 66 Plaza to a site just off the north edge of the Plaza, allowing for weeklong use for presentations during the day and other events in the evening.
  • EAA Radio: The team has moved next to the AirVenture Today building, and will be part of a future media complex area.
  • Education & Interactive Zone featuring College Park presented American Airlines: This is a new area on the northwest corner of Waukau Avenue and Knapp Street Road that was formerly the LSA Mall. College aviation programs will exhibit and be highlighted in this area, with special programs such as the aviation college and job fairs.
  • Innovations Pavilion: Formerly in the old Central Exhibit Building on the flightline, this area for emerging technology and aircraft will move to the tent just south of the Welcome Center, which last year was the Learn to Fly Center.
  • International Visitors Tent: This area moved one "block" to the north in the exhibit area in what was Embry-Riddle's exhibit space in 2012.
  • New restrooms: A new indoor restroom facility was added to the east side of Exhibit Hangar B.
  • Sweepstakes building: The former Young Eagles building is now the Sweepstakes building, located just west of the Comm Center, across Wittman Road.
  • Volunteer Center: The flightline Volunteer Center, formerly east of the Federal Pavilion on the flightline, is now included in Convention Headquarters. You'll find it at the windows on the northeast corner of the building.
