Upswing in Airport Growth Creates New Business Opportunities
Make New Connections at STL Airport's 2017 Business Diversity Forum
St. Louis - March 20, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Business is soaring at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) and there's a need for more qualified businesses and service providers to partner with the Airport. The 3rdAnnual Business Diversity Forum on Friday, March 31, is the key event to connect current and potential contractors and learn about future business opportunities at STL.
The 2017 Business Diversity Forum will feature a keynote address by Krystal J. Brumfield, President and CEO of the Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC), a national organization dedicated to promoting the participation of minority, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises in the multi-billion dollar aviation industry. Brumfield will discuss the vastness of airport contracting nationwide.
This year's Forum is free to attend and runs from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. Complimentary parking will be provided for attendees in the Terminal 1 Parking Garage. The Forum is sponsored by the Airport's Business Diversity Development Office. More than 300 people attended last year's event.
"Our continued growth means an increased need for contractors and service providers to participate in our day-to-day operations," said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, Director of Airports. Hamm-Niebruegge and other key staff will highlight new contract opportunities at the Airport in areas including construction, engineering, maintenance, supplies and materials management, and concessions.
Key Airport decision makers will facilitate roundtable discussions and Forum attendees will have expanded time to network with business owners who are currently providing services at the Airport. Some of these business owners are seeking partners and sub-contractors; all can offer tips on working in an airport environment.
"This year's theme, Connecting Diversity to New Heights, is very apropos," noted Amber D. Gooding, Assistant Director of Community Programs and Business Diversity Development. "The Airport's success means even more opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses to win contracts."
The forum is a must-attend event for minority and women-owned businesses interested in federal and local certification. Gooding will discuss new initiatives and enhancements to the certification program, as well as how her office can assist businesses with developing the strategic alliances, financial resources, and infrastructure needed to do business at the Airport.
