A few area companies will pack their bags for Paris to promote their business.
The Rockford Area Aerospace Network and the Rockford Area Economic Development Council announced Friday six of nine Illinois companies attending the 50th International Paris Air Show are from the Rockford region.
The attending companies include Clinkenbeard, Chicago Rockford International Airport, Ingenium Aerospace, Ingenium Technologies, Kaney Aerospace, and Midwest Aero Support. The show is the world's largest and focuses on business aerospace and aviation.
The companies hope by attending they will bring in more work, and as a result, create more jobs.
"It's the premier air show and there's just tens of thousands that attend this show," Midwest Aero Support President Brent Johnson said. "So if ever there was an opportunity to make a business connection, this is the show to do it at."
The show will be held from June 17th to June 23rd.
