Airshow reception draws 200

LONDON, England – The Mobile region's delegation to the Farnborough International Airshow had 25 one-on-one meetings Tuesday with potential recruits before hosting the Mobile Bay Aerospace Reception. Some 200 people participated in the reception. Troy Wayman, the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce's vice president of economic development, said the purpose of the meetings was to establish connections or remain visible to longtime prospects. Mobile, Ala., is home to Airbus' newest A320 final assembly line. It's scheduled to open next year and produce its first plane in 2016. (Source:, 07/15/14)
