On October 3rd, American Airlines hosted a subcontractor outreach fair at the new Hiltons at McCormick Place. The event was co-hosted by the McHugh/BOWA Joint Venture, F.H. Paschen, and Daifuku/Webb to seek qualified M/WBE subcontractors for two projects for American Airlines at O’Hare International Airport. R.M. Chin Marketing Assistant Kali Strachota worked with American Airlines and others to assist in the scheduling, coordination, and registration for the event.

The event entailed two presentations – one from project managers at McHugh/Bowa working on the American Airlines Project G/L Gate Swap and a second one from project managers at F.H. Paschen working on the American Airlines Terminal 3 Checked Baggage Screening. Directly following the presentations was a Q/A and an opportunity to network.

The G/L Swap includes swapping mainline gates on Concourse L with AA regional gates on Concourse G, new ramp support and hold room spaces, and infrastructure for aircraft parking. The Terminal 3 Checked Baggage Screening includes the renovation of baggage screening facility.

This event was the first of two. Kali has also been a part of the planning process for the second outreach event that will be held on October 10th at F.H. Paschen’s office.
