Washington Airports Hosts Business Opportunity Seminar

Alexandria, VA—The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will offer its Tenth Annual Business Opportunity Seminar for Local Disadvantaged Enterprises, Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, and Minority and Women Owned Businesses on Friday, September 24, 1999 at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel. The Airports Authority operates Washington Dulles International and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airports.

The Seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel located at 1800 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA. A continental breakfast will be offered.

This year’s Seminar, "Small Businesses: Take-Off for Success" is designed to provide first-hand information on upcoming contract opportunities in both the construction and good and services areas at the Airports. Construction and Goods and Services firms, as well as staff from the Airports Authority’s Equal Opportunity, Procurement, Materials Management and Engineering offices will be available to provide information. This seminar is designed as a "one stop" networking opportunity for firms wishing to explore business opportunities with the airports.

In addition to an Exhibit Hall and Business Card Exchange, panel discussions with Authority prime contractors and subcontractors will provide tips on how to compete for and manage construction and goods and services contracts at the Airports.

To register for this complimentary seminar, call Mrs. Troy Wray at (703) 417-0017.
