AAAE/ABS Essentials of Airport Business Management Workshop


General Information

On October 20-21, 2012, AAAE will again join forces with Airport Business Solutions to provide a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the business of airport management. This workshop will focus on managing non-airline related business functions at airports. The Essentials of Airport Business Management Workshop, formerly titled Basics of Small Airport Management, will provide attendees with an overview of property and business management issues confronting airports of any size.

Management of any level at small, medium and large hub airports, as well as general aviation airport facilities, will find the workshop valuable. If you work at an airport that has tenants, and/or you want to attract more (or better) tenants, you definitely will benefit by attending this interactive workshop.

Everyday issues that airport management faces are covered in this two-day program. In addition, there will be ample opportunity for attendees to participate and relate issues that managers are likely to encounter and then apply this to potential problems they may encounter when they return home. Participation is not only suggested but actively encouraged.

The issues to be addressed include:

Rates and charges policies for non-airline interests

Lease structures, negotiation and alternatives

Whether you are new to airport management or are an industry veteran, this hands-on and interactive workshop gives you the opportunity to explore creative and valuable tools that you can apply in the day-to-day management of your airport.
