On April 12-19, Buckhorn and Homans traveled to Nuremburg, Munich and Frankfurt, Germany, as well as Zurich, Switzerland, to generate new opportunities for foreign direct investment in Tampa and Hillsborough County. They were joined by a select group of local leaders, including Tampa Hillsborough EDC Chair David Pizzo, Tampa International Airport CEO Joe Lopano, and Norma Brenne Henning, Honorary Consul to the Federal Republic of Germany.

During their trip, the delegation met with a targeted roster of companies within the manufacturing, life sciences and defense industries, and will brief the media on those events and others from the mission.
