17-28. May America Business trip highlights
Bishop GmbH following the sucessful visits made in 2015, and 2016 to Seattle and Los Angeles made its way again to the USA from 17-28. May 2017.
First stop was on the morning 18. May at LACI (Los Angles Cleantech Incubator) to report on Bishop GmbH’s innovations (Micro Attachment, Composite Rivet etc),
and to follow up any local opportunities (for example tie up with similar company working with JPL).
Also on 18. May, a visit was made to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair at Los Angeles.
Some information was collected, including on an Electric Jet Engine
On 19. May the Getty Museum was visited…
The 22. May was spent building up the Booth from 2016 (somewhat frustrating with a difficult and indifferent supplier)
