We left New Hampshire this afternoon on our way to Old Hampshire for the next week, enroute to England and the Farnborough Airshow.
Held in even-numbered years — the Paris Airshow is held the other years — Farnborough is also an international trade show, bringing together the aerospace industry. This is where suppliers and manufacturers come together to get the next great thing off the ground and into the air. There is always a buzz at Farnborough because of the announcements big companies, like Boeing and BAE, make this week.
This year, New Hampshire will be represented at the show, as part of the Best of New England booth, which we share with Vermont and Maine and several aerospace-related businesses from the region, including the Granite State. This is our chance to tell the rest of the world about the companies here that contribute to the aviation industry.
Our participation in the show is made possible by a State Trade and Export Promotion (STEP) grant awarded to the Office of International Commerce.
There will be much to show and tell you over the next week, so be sure to check back, especially if you’re in the aerospace sector.
