Sacramento International Airport won a national award for the design of its
shops and restaurants.
The airport earned the Best Concessions Program Design award for
medium-sized airports from Airport Revenue News   , a monthly trade magazine
covering airport revenue streams. The award was announced last week at the
magazine's annual Airport Revenue Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Fla.
The airport credits the national honor to the airport's design standards,
attractive storefronts and inviting shopping atmosphere.
"As gateway to Northern California, it's important that we provide customers
a stellar food and shopping experience when they visit Sacramento
International Airport," Director of Airports G. Hardy Acree said in a news
release. "We're proud of the work our staff has done to earn this award."
Sixteen entrants competed for the honor, which was determined by an online
vote of 300 concessionaires from across the country.
