Richmond International Airport, VA (March 12, 2019) – On April 30th, Richmond International Airport (RIC) will partner with Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO) to host a one-day diversity outreach event designed to inform small businesses about contracting opportunities with rental car concessionaires, part of a coast-to-coast initiative organized by the Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) at more than three dozen U.S. airports.

“Both RIC and CHO are committed to promoting awareness of business opportunities to all types and sizes of businesses,” said Russ Peaden, director of real estate and facilities for the Capital Region Airport Commission. “Sometimes we have a special opportunity, like this single-day outreach event focusing on disadvantaged, small, woman-owned and other companies, to convey timely information about contracting opportunities with rental car concessionaires.”

Participants will meet and network with rental car representatives, certifying officials, airport staff, and other businesses and will learn how Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) certification can benefit small businesses.  Companies are not required to be certified to attend.
