6/23/2016 - North Country Chamber at Farnborough Air Show
The North Country Chamber of Commerce has once again been selected by Empire State Development to lead and coordinate the New York State pavilion at the Farnborough International Air Show, taking place this year on July 11-17.
Located near London in the U.K., Farnborough is the site of the largest civil and defense aviation show and expo in the world this year, with more than 1,500 exhibitors, thousands of trade attendees from all over the world, and the finalization and announcement of billions in contracts.
Plattsburgh International Airport will be among the exhibitors at the New York State area, continuing to spread awareness of the existence of an airport and aerospace industrial park one hour from Montreal. The exhibition space for the airport is at no cost to the airport or Chamber, based upon the Chamber coordinating and staffing the state's booth during the entire show.
"The Farnborough and Paris Air Shows, which alternate each year, are exceptional and singular opportunities to be visible, to renew and expand contacts, and to secure meetings and presentations," states Garry Douglas, Chamber President. "And being there very consistently over time is what builds credibility and relationships. We thank New York State for its continued confidence in the Chamber and for its continued support for Plattsburgh International Airport and the North Country."
The North Country Chamber of Commerce serves as the Marketing and Development Agency for Plattsburgh International Airport by contract on behalf of the Clinton County Legislature. For more information on this year's Farnborough International Air Show visit: www.farnborough.com.
