For most of its 140-year history, Huntsville, Alabama, was a quiet cotton town. That is until 1950 when the U.S. Army relocated renowned German scientist Dr. Werner von Braun and his team of rocket scientists to the nearby Redstone Arsenal, and this sleepy little town was forever changed. Huntsville, like much of the American Southeast, no longer relies solely on agriculture, but has a vibrant economy rooted in science and technology. According to the local Chamber of Commerce, Huntsville boasts offices for nearly 50 Fortune 500 Companies. If your business in Huntsville involves a convention or trade show, you will likely be heading to the Von Braun Center, Huntsville's convention and performing arts center.
