Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to co-chair the 2018 34th Annual Airport Business Diversity Conference: Inspiring Possibilities! Where better to host this premier aviation conference than Seattle, a world-class city raised on aviation.

With world-renowned urban landmarks and unmatched natural beauty on every horizon, Seattle sparkles from all sides. City lovers will find Seattle dynamic, diverse and accessible. One of the fastest growing regions in the country, Seattle is also home to one of the nation’s most diverse zip codes. Nature lovers or those looking to unplug will revel in our convenient parks and outdoor recreation along Elliott Bay’s breathtaking waterfront.

The Port of Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport strives to celebrate the diversity of its surrounding communities and extraordinary region in all its work. As we embark on four days of the perfect blend of professional networking to connect you with industry leaders and educational sessions that will provide you the tools to succeed, let’s continue to advocate for investments in projects, technologies and policies necessary to promote the inclusion of minorities and women in employment and contracting opportunities throughout the aviation industry.

As the birthplace of Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft and many more, our city will provide an excellent backdrop to inspire the next great thing waiting to be discovered. We, along with our National Conference Chair, Host Committee, volunteers, AMAC Northwest Regional Director and staff hope the conference provides everything you need to be successful in AMAC and in the aviation industry.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!

 

Sincerely,

The 2018 Co-Chairs
