National Aerospace FDI Exposition (Expo).
The International Trade Administration, SelectUSA, and the Aerospace States Association are co-hosting the National Aerospace Foreign Direct Investment Exposition in Los Angeles on October 26-28, 2015.
The Expo provides information and resources for international companies looking to establish a presence in the United States. Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the U.S. aerospace manufacturing sector is growing rapidly, outpacing the average FDI growth in all U.S. industries. Through matchmaking meetings arranged by the Expo organizers, investors can meet one-on-one with economic developers and officials to explore opportunities and learn about resources and incentives. Top government and industry speakers will discuss the dynamics and trends of the U.S. aerospace manufacturing industry. Confirmed speakers include senior officials from the departments of Commerce, Defense, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as well as senior industry representatives (including the president of Airbus’ operations in North America). Registration is already live and the website, including a draft agenda, can be found here: http://www.aeroinvestmentexpo.com/.
