Phoenix Round Table Meeting and UK Dept of International Trade

Aerospace Arizona Association and the Arizona District Export Council would like to thank you for attending our meeting and reception on the 16th October and contributing to its success.

We believe the perspectives offered by our guest speaker and the subsequent questions and discussion amply highlighted the partnership possibilities with UK ventures and business opportunities between Arizona and the UK. Clearly there is work to be done in formulating successful strategies and executing them. Establishing relationships with local and UK state, industrial and academic partners is acknowledged as a vital key to success. This is an ongoing process and we were happy to facilitate this important forum.

We are particularly grateful to the attendance of Mr. Ben Brierley, US Head of Aerospace and Space from the British Consulate in New York, NY, accompanied by Beth Vaccarezza, Trade & Investment Associate – Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing, Aerospace, Space & Defense. We welcomed his remarks and believe they represent a catalyst to a growing partnership between Arizona and the UK, whereby we can ensure Small and Medium Enterprises’ continued success in securing business via robust industry and government collaboration.

As promised, contact information provided during the reception is attached to this note and included below to facilitate and promote continued networking. Also included below are a couple of photos of the event.

Once again, thanks to our host Snell & Wilmer for a truly magnificent venue and many thanks to all of you for joining us at such short notice. By joining Aerospace Arizona (www.aerospacearizona.org) you will be part of similar future events that we are constantly putting together.

Regards,
