Arizona International Growth Group Presents

Here’s How Arizona Can Win Globally

John Barry – Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport

Introduction on Arizona Resources You Can Use to Grow by PJ Sasso (City of Phoenix) and Doug Bruhnke (Growth Nation)

Monday, May 5th at 7:30am (doors open at 7:10am)

Coffee, Juice and Greek Pastries; Investment $5

RSVP at http://www.azigg.com

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ Auditorium

205 West Jefferson, Downtown Phoenix

This month AZIGG is featuring an important perspective from John Barry of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport on how Arizona is competing for global business. Learn how local developments can help you grow your business.

Have you noticed that Arizona doesn’t have a port? That we started realizing how important global business is a few years behind the leaders? That our economy may still be too dependent on real estate?

Is Arizona doomed because we came to the table late, don’t have direct access to international ports and don’t have enough direct international air connections?

John Barry of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport will shed light on these important questions. He’ll update us on what’s happening and piece it all together for us, and hopefully find some hope for Arizona Business.
