Wednesday Was About Sharing

While most of the Team Mobile delegation headed home on Wednesday, several people in the group had an active day with one-on-one business appointments and cold calls.


A couple of us on the Mobile Area Chamber team spent the day meeting with National and International press selling Mobile’s economic story – including and beyond Airbus and aerospace.


Publications (dailies, trade pubs and web bloggers) we met with before and during the show included: Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, India Strategic, Flightglobal, The Seattle Times, Aerospace Manufacturing and Design, Aviation International News, Aviation Week, The New York Times (International) and Latin Aero.


The great news was that for most of these journalists, they had some knowledge about Mobile. But beyond our aerospace sector, all were pleasantly surprised by just how diverse Mobile’s economy has become. They were also impressed to learn how many international companies have a presence here. We’ve already started initial work in getting some of them to Mobile within the next year, and we’ll be sure to follow up with everyone once we get home.


If you’re wondering what we use as a starting point during these interviews, take a look at Mobile’s on the Grow. I think you’ll find the information in it useful, and document is easy to share.
