It is my pleasure to welcome the international aerospace industry back to Washington State. A century of innovation in aviation and space has built one of the world’s premier aerospace industry centers here. We are proud to have over 132,500 highly-skilled workers in 1,350 aerospace-related firms throughout the state producing some of the most well-known and high-respected products and services in the world. I am honored to join Boeing, BCI Aerospace and all of our aerospace suppliers in hosting this outstanding event in the United States once again. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in April 2020.
Governor of Washington State
We have found the Aerospace and Defense Supplier Summit to be a very effective event to link our Boeing professionals with a large number of qualified new suppliers in a short amount of time. It is also a great way for our key suppliers to connect with new sources to explore their capability, capacity, and innovation.
