The head of Apple, Tim Cook, is set to visit Silicon Valley’s top tech hub in San Jose, the company announced Tuesday.

The trip, which will begin Wednesday, comes as Apple prepares to unveil the iPhone 6S at an event in New York City, its first major product unveiling since Steve Jobs died.

The visit comes just days after Cook, who has been a key figure in the company’s rapid growth, gave a keynote address at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San José, California, saying that he would like to “make a few stops” in the region.

He told reporters that he wanted to take advantage of the region’s “huge” talent pool to recruit more talent, particularly in technology.

“The people in the Valley are incredible,” Cook said.

Cook also addressed the importance of working together to solve global challenges, saying Apple is “in a position to help solve all of them.”

The tech industry is increasingly turning to the region to fill its workforce, with the U.S. adding more than 200,000 new tech jobs last year.
