DENVER -- The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) will host a digital trade mission to Europe from June 7 to 11, 2021, focused on growing the state’s aerospace industry.
During the week, companies will receive industry presentations from various European space agencies, European contractors and small businesses to learn about market opportunities for their businesses.
The Digital Trade Mission is held in partnership with Kallman Worldwide, trade show organizer for shows such as the Paris Air Show, DSEI, Milipol, Avalon and many more. With their flagship USA Partnership Pavilion, end-to-end exhibitor services, custom stand-building and corporate hospitality programs, since 1963 Kallman has helped more than 10,000 companies, associations and government agencies “export with purpose and exhibit with confidence” at over 1,500 industry and professional events in 46 countries.
“Colorado is recognized as a U.S. hub for the aerospace for myriad reasons, including the tremendous cooperation between research and development (academia), business, federal and state government, and the economic development organizations that propel the aerospace industry ecosystem in Colorado,” said Jay Lindell, Aerospace and Defense Industry Champion at OEDIT. “It is one of Colorado’s business strengths to have a very collaborative, business-friendly ecosystem of government, universities, and business.”
Nine Colorado companies have joined the virtual mission to further expand their brands into European markets:
