The presentations were kicked off by Bill Lanham, Manager of the Landside Contract Division at Washington Dulles Airport, who spoke about ground transportation in aviation and how millennials are changing the landscape of the industry.
Bill was followed by a keynote from Ralign Wells, Director Office of Parking and Transportation Maryland Aviation Administration and Baltimore Washington International Airport.
