HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — From the Saturn V to the Space Launch System, Huntsville continues to cement its legacy as the Rocket City. Keeping the momentum going is a top priority for the region’s business recruiters, who are constantly asking, “What’s next?”
Leaders from Huntsville and Madison County are joining others from across Alabama this week at the Paris Air Show, the aerospace and aviation industry’s premier event of the year.
A current focus is helping identify commercial customers for a low-Earth orbit economy, said Lucia Cape, senior vice president of economic development for the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce.
“We see this as an opportunity to expand what we’re good at and find ways to leverage our existing assets into new markets,” she said.
