Mitchel Allen will be the keynote speaker at a March 10 forum focused on Arizona aerospace and defense.

A forum next week explores the outlook for one of Arizona’s most evocative industries—aerospace. When combined with the defense sector, those economic engines have had a noteworthy impact on the state.

The March 10 forum will assess where we are and what we can expect going forward. As a meeting organizer, GPEC, puts it:

“Aerospace is one of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) thrust’s industries. GPEC actively pursues expansion and relocation of new companies into the region. At this meeting we will review and discuss GPEC’s activities, State incentives programs and available support for A&D companies new to the market but also already operating in Greater Phoenix.”

Here is more news about the event, to be held at the Phoenix offices of Greenberg Traurig.

Members of Arizona’s business community are invited to the March 10 meeting of the Arizona Chapter of the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Forum, where attendees will gain insight on why aerospace is one of Greater Phoenix Economic Council’s (GPEC) thrust industries. The event is hosted at the Phoenix office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig.
