These virtual events bring together businesses interested in learning about the Airport Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program and how to gain entry to the airport marketplace.
Taking Flight at DEN
During this event, attendees you can ask questions from DEN Project Managers and start building relationships with potential partners before the RFPs are released.
Business Diversity Summit
The Business Diversity Summit will help attendees build awareness and provide the tools necessary to implement and operationalize equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA). Participants will learn about DEN’s EDIA initiatives, procurement process and how to engage with a diverse workforce.
