PHILADELPHIA – April 25, 2016 – A leasing outreach forum hosted by MarketPlace PHL, LLC, and the City of Philadelphia’s Division of Aviation will take place on Thursday, May 5 at 9:30 a.m. at the Airport Marriott. At the event, local, regional and national retailers, quick service food operators and restaurateurs will learn about the new business opportunities available in the robust concessions program at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

Businesses will have the opportunity to hear about the strong retail and food/beverage program at PHL, as well as learn about locations that will become available throughout the airport. The forum will also serve as a networking opportunity to foster communication and fortify business relationships and new jobs in Philadelphia.
