Florida team Farnborough-bound

A five-member delegation from Northwest Florida is leaving for London later this week to attend the Farnborough International Airshow. Headed up by Florida's Great Northwest, the region's economic development marketing organization, the group includes representatives of Gulf Power, PowerSouth, the Greater Pensacola Chamber and Bay County Economic Development Alliance. The team has set up appointments over the four-day event with aerospace companies. The state of Florida will also have a booth at the air show to promote incentives, workforce advantages, tax advantages and other business-friendly programs available to aviation companies.
