Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance – Competitive Edge Conference in Seattle, WA
Held annually in the heart of Aerospace Manufacturing in North America, the four day event highlights speakers from all of the major OEM’s and Tier 1 manufacturers. Aerospace analysts including Kevin Michaels and Richard Aboulafia also take to the stage to give updates on the state of the industry and trends to watch.
This was Fleet Canada’s first time at the event. Attending as part of the Ontario government sponsored delegation, Fleet was in the spotlight at the well-attended lunch sponsored by the Ontario Government. The conference attendance was over 600 delegates from 355 companies and 10 countries. Many great contacts were made. Kudos to George Braoudakis and his team from the Ontario Ministry of International Trade for a wonderful job organizing the delegation.
We also took this opportunity to visit with a few key customers both current and past. Nothing beats meeting people in person. A big THANK YOU to those who took the time to meet with us (including ACTI, Hexcel and Boeing) and let us tell you about the company we are building. There will be lots of follow up with those we met in hopes of bringing new business to Fleet Canada.
