Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program

On Friday, December 16, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. MTN, there will be a free 30-minute online webinar about the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program.

The Albuquerque International Sunport is a treasured and invaluable asset for the Albuquerque community and state of New Mexico. The Dream of Flight project will not only upgrade the terminal’s aging infrastructure to enhance the safety and security of the facility, but will provide a reimagined experience for the millions of travelers we welcome each year.

With the Sunport’s deep history and our collective admiration for the sense of place that makes this airport unique, the City of Albuquerque’s Aviation Department, in close collaboration with City leadership, are working with a team of nationally-recognized designers and builders to bring the airport into the modern era of air travel while ensuring our new concessions offerings make the experience enjoyable for visitors and New Mexicans alike.

To learn more about the ACDBE (Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise) Program and how your business can become certified, an informative presentation will take place on December 15, 2022 via Zoom. Login details below:

The ACDBE program is a federal program enacted to ensure nondiscrimination and create a level playing field on which ACDBEs compete fairly for concessions at airports. This webinar will provide an overview of the ACDBE program, the certification requirements, and how to initiate the process of becoming a certified ACDBE with the state of New Mexico Department of Transportation.

Due to the upcoming RFP (targeted for first quarter CY 2023) for the redevelopment of Sunport food & beverage and retail concessions that will accompany the renovation project that is currently underway, this opportunity is timely and can benefit small/local businesses that wish to submit proposals to operate in the airport.

Information to share with your organization and the link to the webinar is available on the Sunport’s website here:
