Day 1: Farnborough delegation logs first order of air show

Thanks to a prime booth location in the brand new Hall 1, our Choose Washington delegation reports a very exciting first day at the big Farnborough International Air Show. In addition to heavy foot traffic throughout the day, companies were busy meeting with clients and potential partners. Bill Bigot, vice president of business development for AIT/Nova –Tech, said “We are here because our customers are here…we already received one order today as a result of coming to the show.”

AIT/Nova-Tech booked the first order of the show in the Choose Washington delegation. The Commerce team reports that companies participating in pre-arranged group procurement meetings with several large European buyers found those contacts “very productive.”
