London Calling

Event Summary

On the heels of the game-changing announcement that British Airways will soon start new direct air service between New Orleans and London, GNO, Inc. is excited to announce plans to lead a business mission & international summit in London early this summer – “London Calling.”

The 2 ½ day initiative is intended not only to celebrate the new flight, but to foster a deeper understanding of London & the UK’s post-Brexit economic landscape, while exploring commerce opportunities for stakeholders of the Gulf Coast. The recent inaugural flight caught the attention of numerous media entities, which you can read about here.

Our delegation will include approximately 80 key corporate executives, elected officials, and top community leaders from a diverse set of industry sectors. While in London, we will hear from local experts, corporate and government entities across a number of sectors including Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, Digital/Tech & Creative, and more.

Participants will also have the supplemental opportunity to engage in private, targeted business discussions with UK companies interested in mutually beneficial commerce opportunities.

“London Calling” is your chance to get on board with the renewed economic and cultural connection between London and the Gulf Coast. We hope you can join us.
