Who in the World is Hearing About New Hampshire? If it’s Thursday, it Must Be Dallas

(NH Division of Economic Development Director Carmen Lorentz takes the reins of today’s blog. –Ed.)

Last week, it was Los Angeles.

This week, it’s Dallas.

Next week, it will be Dubai.

These are the places where the Division of Economic Development is spreading the word about New Hampshire and not just about it being a great place to do business.

In Los Angeles last week, Michael Bergeron, our senior business development manager, attended the CoreNet Global summit, one of the largest events of its kind, bringing together over 2,000 corporate real estate executives and site selectors. Thanks to generous sponsorship by the New Hampshire Commercial Investment Board of Realtors, Michael was able to talk with dozens of people about the benefits of doing business in New Hampshire – our tax climate, our educated workforce, our quality of life and available real estate where it can all begin.

This week, he’s in Dallas at CAMX, the premier tradeshow for composites and advanced materials. This year, there are over 550 exhibitors and more than 7,000 people are expected to attend. Joining Michael in the New Hampshire booth are Debra Mattson and Bret Blanchard from Great Bay Community College’s advanced composites manufacturing program. They report a brisk business and interest in New Hampshire’s composites industry.

Next week, Tina Kasim, program manager for our Office of International Commerce, heads to the Dubai Air Show, to represent the state in its own booth. She’ll be accompanied by representatives of three businesses – AQYR, located in Hollis; HALO Maritime Defense Systems of Newton; and Transupport of Merrimack. All three companies are members of the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium.

They are eager to get down to business, meeting decision makers right on the trade show floor. As one of the largest aerospace and defense events in the growing Middle East market, this is the ideal place to showcase New Hampshire innovation and solutions in these industries. Participation the Dubai Air Show is made possible through a State Trade Export Promotion grant.

Our participation at CoreNet Global and CAMX are the first domestic trade shows our business development team has participated in more than five years, thanks to funding included for out-of-state business recruitment in the new state budget.

New Hampshire and its business climate has much to offer companies looking to expand or relocate and Los Angeles, Dallas and Dubai are great places to start telling our story.
