Leading aerospace companies have Ohio flying high. In fact, the Buckeye State is among the top five
states in the country doing business with Boeing and Airbus. What’s behind this success?

how to be a part of this network; highlight emerging opportunities in the defense field; and bring

the stage to explore how Ohio companies can explore further defense and military integration.
