Aero-Defense group seeks logo
CONCORD — Doodlers and designers are invited to enter a logo competition for the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium, which will help the new group with its brand identity.
Organized last March, the consortium brings together the hundreds of businesses and manufacturers and is funded through a grant from the State Trade Export Promotion program. It provides resources to its members to expand their sales to markets around the world.
“We’ve identified over 300 companies and manufacturers in the state that are connected to the aero and defense industries and of those, more than 70 are members of the consortium,” said Tina Kasim, program manager for the New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center, which helped launch the consortium.
The winner of the logo contest will be awarded a one-year membership to the consortium, and the logo will be featured on the website and on marketing materials.
For more information on the contest and the guidelines, visit www.ExportNH.org or contact Kasim at 271-8444.
