Members of the Rockford Area Aerospace Network have just returned from the National Business Aviation Association's 65th Annual Meeting and Convention.
During the event in Orlando, the group identified opportunities for Rockford businesses to expand through matchmaking and businesses that could expand their work into the Rockford area.
"We were able to have very productive conversations with multiple aerospace and aviation companies regarding expansions and relocations into the Rockford area," Rockford Area Economic Development Council Vice President of National Business Development Eric Voyles said. "We will now dedicate our time to following up and tracking these exciting opportunities for our region."
The convention is the fourth largest trade show in the country and the largest that is focused on business aerospace and aviation. Local companies that shared RAAN's booth include Ardekin Precision, Chicago Rockford International Airport, Ingenium Technologies, Kaney Aerospace Repair Station, and Midwest Aero Support.
The Rockford Area Aerospace Network is a committee of the Rockford Area Economic Development Council.
