The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) has unveiled plans to host its Supplier Management Council conference in Indianapolis in the spring of 2018.

Presented in partnership with Rolls-Royce and the state of Indiana, the conference will showcase Indianas growing aerospace and aviation industry.

Aerospace has taken flight in Indiana, said Governor Mike Pence. With the recent growth from companies like Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation, Raytheon and Alcoa, Indiana is soaring as an aerospace industry leader. Thousands of Hoosiers work in the industry today, a number which only continues to climb with increased visibility for our state at events like the Farnborough International Airshow and the Aerospace Industries Association conference. We look forward to hosting the Aerospace Industries Association and its members in the Hoosier state as we work to attract even more jobs to Indiana.

AIA is a leading aerospace trade association, representing more than 300 of the nations major aerospace and defense manufacturers and suppliers. The conference, which is held three times each year, will bring together industry partners in  Indianapolis, providing a backdrop for companies to stay updated on the latest industry innovations and develop new business relationships.

David. F. Melcher, president and chief executive officer of AIA, said, We are particularly proud to recognize Indiana as the first state to partner with AIA and one of our member companies to host a Supplier Management Council meeting. This is a major step forward in our efforts to convene large and small companies to enhance opportunities for our industry and the communities that support them, and we hope other states and companies soon come forward with similar arrangements.

There are currently 82 aerospace companies operating across Indiana, employing more than 6,880 Hoosiers. Over the last two years, leading aerospace businesses including Alcoa, BAE Systems, GE Aviation, Raytheon and Rolls-Royce have announced plans to invest more than $900 million into Indiana and create more than 1,200 new Hoosier jobs. The state's aircraft and spacecraft exports have increased at an average annual rate of nearly 30% since 2002.
