The third annual SpeedNews Aerospace Manufacturing Conference will be held at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, Los Angeles County, CA.
After hosting the previous two conferences in Mobile, AL and Charleston, SC, Penton’s SpeedNews picked Los Angeles County thanks to the efforts of the SoCal Jobs Defense Council.
The Jobs Defense Council was brought together by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) to maintain and grow the aerospace industry in Southern California.
The LAEDC teamed up with other organizations to offer a high-level sponsorship for the event that will highlight the strengths of Los Angeles County and the wider SoCal region, and bring more attention to each of the organizations.
Others joining the LAEDC in bringing the event to the region include the Santa Clarita Valley EDC, Greater Antelope Valley Economic Alliance, UCLA Extension, CalState LA, CalPoly Pomona, Glendale Community College, CSUN, CMTC, and Frontier Associates.
The SpeedNews Aerospace Manufacturing Conference brings together the leaders of major aerospace industry manufacturers and suppliers. It provides the LAEDC and other regional organizations an opportunity to show them what the Southern California region aerospace and defense industry cluster has to offer.
“We are excited to host our 3rd Annual Aerospace Manufacturing Conference in Los Angeles, California with the support of Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation,” said Joanna Speed, Managing Director, A&D Events, Penton Aviation, in a release announcing the conference location.
Speed added that with California’s robust A&D industry and the recent initiatives for A&D companies within Los Angeles County, they are proud to support the city and state with this annual Aerospace Manufacturing event.
LAEDC COO David Flaks said in the release that Los Angeles County has a rich history in the aerospace and defense industry, spanning decades and developing some of the world’s best innovations.
Flaks added that Los Angeles County is a top location for A&D in the nation, with an expansive supplier base of firms, skilled talent, and unmatched export capacity with an infrastructure to support the location and growth of companies.
