Online Shoptalk for Airports: COVID-19 and Our Industry’s Response

Join IPMI for a free online shoptalk to discuss and collaborate about the effects of the COVID-19 virus and the industry’s response. Moderated by Dean Ahmad and David Wilson of Dallas Forth Worth International Airport, this hour-long discussion will provide insights, evolving best practices and ideas/solutions to help your organization cope with these challenges.
