Today’s panel will explore the “concession financing world” offering insight and real life recommendations to finding the “money” in today’s challenging financial environment. Panel Speakers: • Charles Gates will address the “airport” perspective – requirements, needs, and what can a public-sector entity do to facilitate concession financing. • Ray Quintanilla, DFW airport concessionaire, will bring perspective from the ACDBE small business owner side. • Bob Lopez, PHX airport concessionaire, will bring perspective from the large business side having dealt with financing multi-airport concession locations, and recently pursued a large prime concessionaire opportunity.
