Detroit Regional Chamber Markets Detroit Region’s Aerospace Industry at Paris Air Show

The Detroit Regional Chamber teamed with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Pure Michigan Business Connect program at the Paris Air Show last week to develop opportunities for the Detroit region’s aerospace sector. The Chamber conducted followup meetings with several firms that expressed interest in the region at Aeromart in Montreal in April. The Chamber team showcased the region to Airbus, whose U.S. operations are currently in Mobile, Ala. The company is looking to move a large percentage of its major overseas component work back to the U.S.

The Paris Air Show is the key global event for the aviation and space industry. In 2011, the show hosted to 2,113 exhibitors from 45 countries, 290 official delegations from 82 countries, and more than 150,000 trade visitors. Click here to read the team’s blog posts from Paris.
