2016 Annual Airport Business Diversity Conference


Theme: “Rocking and Rolling Together: Promoting Diversity Inclusion in Airports”

Event Website:

Hosted by the Cleveland Airport System, the 2016 Annual Airport Business Diversity Conference provides three days of professional development and business networking opportunities to foster and grow strategic partnerships across all lines of business. Conference attendees include airport operators, airline executives, government officials and prime contractors, as well as minority and women business owners, small business enterprises, airport concessions and disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/SBE/AC/DBE).

About AMAC:  The Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) is the only national, non-profit trade association dedicated to promoting the full participation of minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises in airport contracting and the inclusion of minorities and women in employment. AMAC believes strongly that the inclusion of more minority-owned and women-owned businesses in airports makes good business sense and reflects the communities and markets these airports serve. As the industry grows, airports continue to increase and expand, furthering the economic growth of communities. With this growth comes enormous opportunity – amounting to billions of dollars annually in construction, procurement, professional services and concession contracts at our nation’s airports. AMAC is filing a “Flight Plan For Success” and you can, too!  AMAC and its affiliates represent thousands of members that include airport operators, government officials, corporations, and M/W/DBE entrepreneurs.
