Invest in Andalucía Set to Host 2014 Spanish Aerospace Forum

Spanish regional foreign direct investment group welcomes aviation industry leaders to breakfast conference in Montreal

MONTREAL, QC (November 10, 2014) – Invest in Andalucía, the economic development team from the Andalucía region in Spain, is set to welcome aviation and aerospace leaders to its inaugural summit conference in Montreal, Quebec. The event will take place on November 12, 2014 at 8:00am, located at the Marriott Chateau Champlain. On hand to present will be the Invest In Andalucía team, Airbus Group, and other industry experts. A complementary breakfast will be served.

Andalucía, Spain is the second largest aerospace region in the country, with over 130 aeronautical companies operating in the province, representing approximately 30% of the national aerospace revenues. Spain itself is one of the top five European aerospace markets, with more than 40,000 employees currently working in the industry and sales of €6.5 billion recorded in 2011. Andalucía is also home to the Airbus Group, who chose the region for flagship projects from its military transportation segment. The Invest in Andalucía team is looking to meet with Canadian aviation and aerospace enterprises to present foreign direct investment opportunities in Andalucía.

“The Province of Andalucía prides itself on maintaining its prominence in the aerospace industry, and this summit we’re hosting in Montreal will continue to position our region and the industry players in the right direction”, said Elena Gallego Cañabate, Head of FDI Attraction Division at Invest in Andalucía. “We intend for the summit to educate potential investors about our region, and offer an opportunity to network and establish connections that can be beneficial for all parties in the years to come. Montreal is world-renowned hub for the aerospace industry, and our delegation is looking very forward to meeting with Canadian leaders in this sector.”

Invest in Andalucía is working with ResearchFDI, a Montreal-based market research firm, to help attract potential companies that are interested in investing in the Andalucía region. ResearchFDI provides lead generation services to worldwide economic development organizations, amongst a wide array of e-marketing and representation services.
