Why Southern California?

AeroTech 2020 will be held in Pasadena, a hub for top aerospace companies with a focus on private space travel and defense. California remains the state with the highest employment levels for aerospace engineers with 11,440 employed as of May 2018 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

A recent report by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation found that: 

  • Guided missile and space vehicles (and related parts) manufacturing employment has grown by more than 64% since 2004.
