Largest European delegation

At the three-day Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance Conference in Lynnwood, Seattle, Washington State, the representatives of Niedersachsen’s business community were the largest group from Europe, with participants from every stage of the supplier chain. They showcased Niedersachsen as an aerospace  location from 13 – 16 February at their trade fair stand and a presentation in the conference programme, true to this year’s motto: ‘Implementing Technology and Innovation’.

For many years the State of Niedersachsen, through its ‘Niedersachsen Aviation’ initiative, has been a strong presence at the international PNAA-Conference. The Niedersachsen stand attracted many visitors and generated lively interest in the location from companies. Consistent commitment over many years has created a strong awareness of Niedersachsen in the PNAA aviation cluster, which originally evolved around the Boeing corporation.

Furthermore, delegation members took the opportunities to contribute to specialist presentations at the conference, build on and cultivate international contacts and gather information on current trends in the sector.




Niedersachsen Aviation's mission is to promote the State as one of the leading European aerospace locations.
