LAWA’S TERMINAL 9 INDUSTRY SHOWCASE ATTRACTS OVER 1,100 ATTENDEES HOPING TO PARTNER WITH LAX ON ITS LATEST TRANSFORMATION PROJECT
(Los Angeles) Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) welcomed over 1,100 guests from its surrounding community, across the U.S., and around the world at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)’s Terminal 9 Industry Showcase, making it one of the highest-attended procurement events in the airport’s history. During the showcase, the audience heard from Board of Airport Commissioners member Karim Webb, LAWA Chief Executive Officer Justin Erbacci, Chief Development Officer Terri Mestas, and other airport leaders about its newest transformation project. Terminal 9 will bring roughly 1.4 million square feet of ground-up construction to LAX’s campus to serve an estimated 7.2 million annual departing domestic and international passengers. The terminal will become emblematic of LAX because of its prominence at the airport's new front door while remaining within LAX’s existing footprint.
