Yesterday, we joined 100 other exhibitors at the 2018 Aerospace Alley Tradeshow at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. The morning session was the Future WorkForce Opportunities Fair where members of the Aerospace Components Manufacturers association championed the virtues of advanced manufacturing careers.
Every year, this show is a highlight, hosting more than 1,000 middle school and high school students from surrounding communities.
We are definitely making some headway in this effort to demonstrate the benefits of teaching manufacturing skills to the next generation. Our booth was swamped with students interested in learning more.
The afternoon session was the traditional B2B trade show and we greeted customers, leads, and peers from all over.
