Birmingham will host two concurrent international business conventions this May, serving the aerospace and automotive industries. Both events will take place at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, with 200 companies from around the globe expected to participate.
Birmingham’s focus on high-tech job growth and the city’s extensive infrastructure will be front and center during the global summit, making it ideal to identify innovative partners to build out the next generation of manufacturing, said Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin.
“Now, more than ever, Birmingham is focused on bringing high-quality technology jobs to our city. The summit gives a great chance to identify innovative partners that share our commitment to the next generation of manufacturing in the aerospace and automotive industries,” Woodfin said. “Birmingham’s infrastructure, including four major highways, railways, and 400+ acres of the airport in an Opportunity Zone, position us as a destination city to expand high-tech manufacturing operations. We are grateful for the chance to highlight the strength of the workforce and the opportunity to become a logistical hub for companies looking to grow.”
