At Paris Air Show, states find plenty of competitors in U.S. hall

PARIS – The competition for aerospace jobs and investment is fierce. No place demonstrates that better than the U.S. Pavilion at the 2017 Paris Air Show, where nearly two dozen states have exhibition booths.

At the aerospace industry’s premiere trade show, these booths serve as a nerve center and meeting space for the state economic developers teams who travel to Le Bourget Airport to connect with business executives.

The Alabama Department of Commerce’s “Made in Alabama” booth was a busy place this week. Governor Kay Ivey and Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield had appointments were representatives from several companies at the booth, as did teams from around the state.

Altogether, 30 scheduled appointments were held at the booth over just two days.
