PITTSBURGH — To identify and engage local companies and source locally-made, sustainable building and construction products for the Terminal Modernization Program (TMP) at Pittsburgh International Airport, the Allegheny County Airport Authority will conduct a Vendor Product Pitch Fair August 27 at David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh.
This event, which is an extension of the airport’s ongoing community outreach initiatives for the Terminal Modernization Program, provides an opportunity for businesses, contractors, disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) and others who are seeking business/procurement opportunities with the Airport Authority.
Companies who register for the event will be invited to give a brief presentation about their product and display samples for members of the terminal design team and airport staff. Teams are particularly interested to hear from companies specializing in concrete, masonry, metals, wood, plastics and composites, thermal and moisture protection, doors and windows, finishes and flooring, special accessories, fire suppression systems, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, communications, earthwork, landscaping, equipment and furnishings and more.
“This first-ever Vendor Product Pitch Fair is a unique opportunity for companies to get in front of the design team and have their products considered for use in world-class airport facilities,” said Paul Hoback, Chief Development Officer. This airport will be built for Pittsburgh, and we want it to include Pittsburgh products.”
The schedule for the Vendor Product Fair is as follows:
Date: Tuesday, August 27
Agenda: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. – Company Pitch Sessions for the Terminal Modernization Program team and Airport Authority department representatives Location: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown Pittsburgh

The Terminal Modernization Program, which was announced in September 2017, is expected to generate nearly two billion dollars in economic activity, adding nearly 11,000 direct and indirect jobs to the region.
