2011 Concessions Contest Opens

ACI-NA is pleased to announce the launch of the 2011 ACI-NA Richard A. Griesbach Concessions Contest! It is a unique opportunity for our industry to recognize success and innovation in commercial programs at airports of all sizes.
Close to 20 awards were given in 2010 in various categories encompassing almost all aspects of airport concessions. Categories included Best Food & Beverage Program, Best New Retail Concept,  Best “Green” Concession Practice or Concept Category, and Concession Person of the Year, just to name a few! Also, annually ACI-NA presents the Richard A. Griesbach Award for Excellence that recognizes an overall concession program. Click here to view previous year's winners.
Becoming part of the contest is an easy and quick process! Any ACI-NA member (airport or associate) may fill out the online 2011 Call for Entry Nomination Form and submit it by no later than September, 2. Please note that 2010 winners cannot be nominated again this year for the same category but can be nominated in a different category.

The awards will be announced at the 2011 Airport Concessions Conferenceon November 8, 2011 in Atlanta, GA. We hope you’ll join us to help salute the many firms and airports that have taken steps to grow and develop our industry.
