NICEVILLE — A five-member delegation from Northwest Florida is leaving for London later this week on a mission to bring aviation jobs to the region.
The group of economic development professionals will attend the
Farnborough Air Show where hundreds of aviation companies will be
meeting to buy, sell and demonstrate the latest in airplanes,
helicopters and other aviation products and services.
Headed up by Florida’s Great Northwest, the region’s economic
development marketing organization, the group has set up appointments
over the four-day event with leading global aerospace companies.
“We will be meeting with the decision makers of aerospace OEMs and
major suppliers to discuss why we believe they can be successful in
Northwest Florida,” said Larry Sassano, president of Florida’s Great
Northwest. “Aviation companies are one of our top targets and there is
no better place than Farnborough to have a captive audience with this
many companies.” More here.
