Have a Small Business? Join us for our Annual "Meet the Primes" Event

Tuesday, October 18, 2022

The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (Airport Authority) is hosting two virtual “Meet the Primes” events on November 1 and 8. First introduced in 2015, “Meet the Primes” is a free annual event for the business community to connect with and learn from the Airport Authority, the Airport Authority’s partners, San Diego’s small business support service centers, and public agencies.

Through our Small Business Development department, the Airport Authority works towards maximizing small, local, veteran, and underrepresented business participation in contracts with the Airport Authority and its partners. Attendees will learn how to do business with the Airport Authority, construction and concession opportunities for the New T1 program, and more. Attendees will also learn about regional teaming, partnership, and contracting opportunities through one-on-one matchmaking meetings with prime contractors and Airport Authority departments including Small Business Development, Revenue Generation & Partnership Development, Accounting, Airport Design & Construction, Procurement, Quieter Home Program, Information & Technology Services, Labor Compliance, Finance, and Risk Management.

The “Meet the Primes” event and virtual matchmaking sessions will be conducted virtually on November 1 and 8. The event is free to businesses and registration is now open at For more information on the Airport Authority’s Small Business Development Program, please visit
