In this online webinar, three ACDBEs will discuss their experience obtaining financing for airport concessions deals. First learn about funding sources such as community banks, friends and family, traditional banks and alternative resources. Then we will unravel some of the tricky questions surrounding private equity funding to ACDBEs. Finally, an alternative lender will speak to his firm’s lending vehicles specifically targeted to ACDBEs in joint ventures and how to prepare yourself for participation in this program and with other alternative lenders. All will share lessons learned to assist you in selecting the best financing option for your organization. We will answer questions submitted during the webinar live following the presentation.
