Aéro Montréal, which is Quebec’s aerospace cluster, wrapped up its two-day Aerospace Innovation Summit and among the more than 1,000 attendees were our Michael Bergeron and Beno Lamontagne.
“The forum has become essential for aerospace stakeholders in Québec and internationally who want to learn about the latest technological advances, create collaborative projects between countries and generate business opportunities,” said Suzanne M. Benoît, president of Aéro Montréal.
There are about 350 companies in the Granite State that have a connection to the aerospace and defense industries, according to the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium, which forged a collaboration with Aéro Montréal in 2013.
Bergeron said the venue is a great place to connect with companies that may have an interest, or a need, to have a presence in New Hampshire. He said that while many Canadians were drawn to our booth to relate their vacation experiences in the White Mountains or Hampton Beach, they were surprised to learn about the business side of the state – particularly the lack of a sales or personal income tax and our business friendly climate.
It’s been a busy week here at NH Economy, but for New Hampshire, it’s been a great one, with international exposure from the halls of Hannover Messe in Germany, the world’s largest industrial trade fair, to Aéro Montréal, one of the world’s largest aerospace clusters, right over the border.
