Harlingen EDC and VIA travel to Houston for promotion 

Representatives from both the Harlingen EDC and Valley International Airport are currently in Houston at SpaceCom, a three‐day event taking place Nov. 17-19 to fuel business innovation across the aerospace, medical, energy, transportation, maritime, communications and advanced manufacturing industries.

SpaceCom is also held to unite public and private stakeholders involved in domestic and international space commerce with a new group of global business executives looking for competitive advantage through the application of space technology to their industries.

“We’d like to meet with decision makers seeking a cost effective location for their business. Those companies looking for a young, talented and trainable workforce are a perfect fit for our area,” said HEDC CEO Raudel Garza. “Also, we’d like to explore other opportunities at the show. Educating ourselves allows us to be better‐versed and more knowledgeable in the industry.”

The HEDC team has already attended the Space Symposium in Denver and the Aerospace Summit in Queretaro, Mexico in 2015.
