ACI-NA Excellence in Airport Concessions Awards Reminder

ACI-NA is pleased to announce the launch of the 2013 ACI-NA Excellence in Airport Concessions Awards. This is a unique opportunity for our industry to recognize success and innovation in commercial programs at airports of all sizes.Close to 40 awards were given in 2012 in various categories encompassing almost all aspects of airport concessions. Categories included Best Food & Beverage Program (Full-Service/Quick-Service Concept), Best New Retail Concept, Best "Green" Concession Practice or Concept Category, and Concessions Person of the Year, just to name a few. Also, annually ACI-NA presents the Griesbach Award for Excellence that recognizes an overall concession program.

Becoming part of the contest is an easy and quick process. Any ACI-NA member (airport or associate) may fill out the online 2013 Call for Entry Nomination Form and submit it by no later than August 9, 2013. Please note that 2012 winners cannot be nominated again this year for the same category but can be nominated in a different category.
