CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is making its first appearance next month at one of the largest trade shows in the Middle East.

The New Hampshire Office of International Commerce is participating in the Dubai Air Show Nov. 8-12. Companies represented will include AQYR of Hollis, provider of satellite communications hardware; HALO Maritime Defense Systems of Newton, designer of sea barriers; and Transupport of Merrimack, a stocking distributor for gas turbine engines.

Funding for participation comes from a State Trade Export Promotion grant.

The companies are members of the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium. More than 300 companies and manufacturers in the state are involved in the aerospace and defense industries.

“Participating in the show gives us the ability to present our product to a worldwide audience, which we could not do on our own,” said Mark Wheeler, director of business development for AQYR. “By being at the Dubai Air Show, we’ll be able to seek out local and regional companies for distribution and sales partnerships. We’ll have access to military, government and commerce officials and all of these together increase our visibility and capabilities in a way we could not achieve on our own.”
