Denver International Airport (DIA), the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (Metro Denver EDC) and the Metro Denver Aviation Coalition (MDAC) will host the sixth annual State of DIA luncheon Tuesday, April 29, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Denver Marriott City Center located at 1701 California Street.

Following an introduction by Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, Kim Day, DIA's Manager of Aviation, will address the airport's 2013 successes, as well as the facility's future in a competitive global marketplace. Day will highlight DIA's transformative year growing international air service by 13 percent, including DIA's first nonstop flight to Tokyo. Some of the topics will include how DIA was the only large U.S. airport named among the Top 10 in the world by Skytrax as well as having the best airport staff in North America. Day will discuss the progress of the Hotel and Transit Center, which construction crews are pouring the 13th floor of the 14-story building, new concessions and other new amenities aimed to win the hearts of customers. She will talk about areas for improvement with a 19-year-old facility, which will require additional investments to maintain. Day will also address the strong financial future of the airport and how the airport is finding new ways to grow revenue that also provides opportunities to benefit the region.

The presenting sponsor of the 2014 State of DIA luncheon is Mortensen/Hunt/Saunders Tri-Venture.  Additional support is provided by the Metro Denver EDC and the Metro Denver Aviation Coalition. contact DIA Business Offices search
