The Aerospace Industries Association plans to host its Supplier Management Council conference in Indianapolis in the spring of 2018, state officials announced Tuesday from a prestigious airshow in England.

The conference is held three times a year.

The Indianapolis event will be presented in partnership with Rolls-Royce and the state of Indiana. Rolls-Royce is an England-based company with facilities worldwide. It employs about 4,000 employees in the Indianapolis area.
