Where in the World is New Hampshire? Hannover and Montreal

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

NHatHannoverThe office will be awfully quiet next week, as our team heads out in two directions, but with the same mission of telling the world about why New Hampshire, with our industries, our business-friendly climate, our skilled and educated workforce, is a great place for companies abroad to consider partnerships, expansion or relocation.





Director Carmen Lorentz and Office of International Commerce Program Manager Tina Kasim head out tomorrow for Hannover Messe 2016, the world’s largest industrial trade fair. More than 200,000 people pass through to visit over 6,500 exhibitors, including New Hampshire. The US is the featured country; President Obama will be there to open the event this weekend. Carmen and Tina have lined up meetings with industry sector and business leaders and we are looking forward to hearing about them throughout the week.

Jewell Instruments of Manchester will also be exhibiting at the show; Brian Ward, director of business development sensor and controls, and Lorentz talked about the event on our monthly New Hampshire Business Matters radio show on WTPL-FM.

They also talked about the upcoming NH Aerospace and Defense Conference, June 1, in Manchester … which is a good segue into the next topic:



aeroOn Monday and Tuesday, Michael Bergeron and Beno Lamontagne head over the border to Montreal, where they will attend the Aerospace Innovation Forum. With more than 300 Granite State companies involved in the aerospace and defense industries – which are among our key industries – it makes sense to have a presence and be among companies and leaders of Aero Montreal, one of the largest aerospace clusters in the world.

Bergeron and Lamontagne will be there in support of the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium and the New Hampshire Seacoast Aerospace Cluster and they’ll meeting with company representatives interested in connecting with companies here.

At the last Aerospace Innovation Forum in 2013, NHADEC signed its first international partnership with Aero Montreal, establishing preferred relations between the organizations collaboration on topics such as training, research, joint trade missions and supplier development initiatives.

We are going to keep up with these two events – and we hope you will, too – via our Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages.

Convenience … Just a Click Away

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012



What we are sharing here is not new, but if you are a business owner , especially a 21st century business owner who embraces online convenience, you’ll want to know about this service.

If you’re a corporation, an LLC (Limited Liability Company), a Limited Liability Partnership, New Hampshire Investment Trust, Consumer Cooperative or a Cooperative Marketing and Rural Electrification Association, then you know that you have to file an annual report with the New Hampshire Secretary of State’s office every year.

And a few months before the April 1 deadline for filing that report, you know you can expect to get a paper notice in the mail, reminding you to file that report.

Laurie Harrigan tells us her office mails out over 70,000 of these notices annually. You can do the math and see that this is a bit of an expense.

Since 2003, the SOS has offered online registration and, now, in the midst of summer, when things are a little quieter, why not take a moment and click over to the SOS website and register to receive your reminder online.

Convenient? You bet. It’s also one of the little things we do in New Hampshire that helps our businesses be efficient and modern. For that, people notice, as our business friendly scores are consistently high in a variety of polls.
