Millions of dollars are up for grabs at airports in large cities and Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is putting those in charge face-to-face with minority and women-owned business that aren't always afforded the opportunity.
“We are bringing to the St. Louis region airport officials and leading corporate executives who have the power to award contracts at large airports in the cities of Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and more,” said Airport Minority Advisory Council Executive Director Shelby Scales. “These decision makers will be searching for companies that have the capabilities to also work in markets outside St. Louis.”
Lambert Airpot will host the 28th Annual Airport Business Diversity Conference Friday, June 9 through June 12 at the America’s Center in partnership with the Airport Minority Advisory Council and the Federal Aviation Administration.
The airport and aviation contracts are for specific areas including capital improvement and construction, concessions and professional services.
Registration is required for the 4-day event, which also features an expo. Airports and companies showcase their services in front of more than 1,200 business and aviation corporate leaders from across the country during the expo.
“We’re proud to welcome airport and aviation business leaders from around the country to St. Louis,” Lambert Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said. “This is an extraordinary opportunity for numerous types of local companies in the St. Louis region to foster new leads or explore business opportunities in the aviation sector.”
