SC Aerospace Conference & Expo launch new website and social media
South Carolina’s Aerospace Conference & Expo have launched a new website and social media channels to promote the annual event. The website, located at southcarolinaaerospaceconference.com, will provide information on the three-day conference and expo, including the programming lineup, an interactive exhibitor map, registration information and more. The Facebook page and Twitter account will offer news and updates from conference organizers in addition to news from South Carolina’s growing aerospace industry.
The 2017 Conference and Expo is the fourth annual event celebrating South Carolina’s growing aerospace industry cluster. Last year, more than 500 attendees and 50 exhibitors came from across the Southeastern United States to hear from Boeing South Carolina’s Joan Robinson-Berry, Aviation Week’s William Garvey and Carole Hedden, the Federal Aviation Administration’s Patricia Watts, and a number of other industry leaders.
The speaker lineup for this year’s event has not been announced. The three-day event will include two days of ACE Technical Symposium sessions, one day of Business and Workforce Development sessions, and a full exhibit hall with student and industry demonstrations.
Early-bird registration packages are available on the website. Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are also available.
The SC Aerospace Conference & Expo is organized by the University of South Carolina’s McNAIR Center for Aerospace Research and Innovation, the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the South Carolina Aeronautics Commission and the South Carolina Aviation Association.
