Asia Pacific is key market, West Coast companies perfectly placed for
opportunity, says Fast
ABBOTSFORD, BC, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Located in B.C.'s Fraser Valley,
just seconds from the Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) and minutes from the Canada-U.S. border at Huntington-Sumas, Tradex in Abbotsford is the venue for the 2014 Aerospace, Defence and Security Expo (ADSE), and Abbotsford the base for the Aerospace Industry Association
of Canada's (AIAC) Pacific division.
In addition to being right next to an international border and airport,
Abbotsford is close to the Fraser River and Pacific Ocean, which means
easy access to the Pacific Northwest and facilities such as Boeing's
final assembly and integration production lines in Seattle, as well as
the important Asia Pacific aerospace marketplace.
"I am very pleased that AIAC Pacific will be hosting the 2014 Aerospace,
Defence & Security Expo in Abbotsford during Airshow Week," commented
the Hon. Ed Fast, MP for Abbotsford and Minister of International
Trade. "As one of the world's leaders in aerospace, Canada is perfectly
placed to leverage its innovation and knowledge advantage to drive
economic growth and long-term prosperity for Canadians. I look forward
to joining the hundreds of participants in showcasing Canadian
excellence in this sector."
Almost half of the world's air-traffic growth will be connected to or
within the Asia Pacific region in the next 20 years. At the same time
global airplane sales, for both fleet growth and replacement of aging
aircraft, will total 35,000 units for a value of more than $4.8
"Asia Pacific is a key market for Canada's aerospace industry. Companies
located on the west coast are perfectly situated to take advantage of
this opportunity, which is made even greater by the B.C. government's
recent funding contribution," said Jim Quick, president and CEO of
The AIAC Pacific team is also developing a strategic, dynamic web
presence to bring the province's aerospace voices and interests
together and showcase B.C. industry success stories.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
