Alabama trade mission targets connections at FIDAE air show in Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile — An Alabama delegation including five companies is in Chile’s capital city for this week’s International Air and Space Fair, or FIDAE, seeking to develop business connections at South America’s foremost aerospace exposition.

The Alabama Department of Commerce is heading the trade mission delegation to Santiago and hosting a “Made in Alabama” exhibition booth for the state businesses to showcase their goods and services.

“FIDAE is the leading exhibition for aerospace, defense, and security in Latin America, so it represents a great opportunity for these Alabama firms to explore potential new markets and partnerships,” said Christina Stimpson, director of Commerce’s Office of International Trade.

“Being able to exhibit in the ‘Made in Alabama’ booth gives them a chance to show off their innovative capabilities and technologies, while also highlighting why Alabama is home to hundreds of aerospace, aviation, and defense-related companies,” she added.
