For your convenience, we compiled a list of FAQs below.


I attended the Concessions Refresh outreach event last year. Is this event a repeat of that presentation?

No, it is not. This meeting will provide updated information, such as sales and enplanements, an updated floorplan, a site tour, as well as time to network with national concessions operators and local brands.

When will the RFI be released?

The estimated date is January 5, 2018; however, this date is subject to change. Periodically, please check the IND link above for updates related to the release.

Will there be a pre-proposal conference after the RFI is released?

Most likely, but not definite. The IAA strongly encourages attendance at this event.

Is current experience operating concessions at the airport required?

No, it is not.

What time will the meeting end?

Per the agenda above, we anticipate that it will end at 4:30 pm, but it could be a bit earlier or a bit later than that.

Do I have to stay for the entire program and what is the latest I can arrive?

No, you do not have to stay for the entire program. If you are a local brand, while we recommend meeting the national operators and taking the tour if you are not familiar with the airport, you can arrive any time before 4:30 pm (there will be someone from the IAA in the boardroom even while people are taking the tour).

What time will the tour take place?

We anticipate that the tour will start at 3:15 pm, but it could be a bit earlier or later than that.

I would like to meet the national operators. Will they be there all day, or only for part of the day?

The national operators will be having one-to-one meetings with local brands from 1 pm until 3 pm on the catwalk above Civic Plaza. We are hopeful that they will be with us for the other parts of the program, as well.

What are my parking options getting to the event?

Please park in the covered garage. The IAA will provide you with a voucher to cover the cost.

Is my registration transferrable to a co-worker if I cannot attend?


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


If I have a general question about the event or need to cancel my reservation, who may I contact?

Our meeting planner and outreach consultant, Aleta Mungal, will be happy to assist you. Her email address is: Should your question be more technical in nature, Aleta will direct your inquiry to the correct person at the IAA.
