Home

DENVER, CO — Aug. 23, 2013 — Denver International Airport (DIA) will host a training seminar for people interested in learning more about the airport’s Retail Merchandising Unit (RMU) and kiosk program, which provides a launching point for doing business at the airport.

Provenzano Resources launched the RMU program at DIA in September 2011. The program offers small, local businesses the ability to license one of the 38 RMU or kiosk locations throughout the airport. The program offers entrepreneurs and small business owners short-term agreements that provide valuable airport business experience with low startup costs, compared to traditional storefront locations.

Deborah S. Kravitz, president of Provenzano Resources, will lead the training session on how to become an operator with the RMU program from 8-11:30 a.m. on Sept. 10. The training will take place at the DIA City Conference Room, located on Level 6 of the west side of the Jeppesen Terminal. The training will cover essential information about joining the RMU program, including concepts, business plans, start-up and operating costs, visual merchandising, staffing and product planning. The training also will cover how to become certified as an Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise for women- and minorityowned businesses. Previous business experience is not required, and there is no cost to register. Garage parking will be validated at the event.
