34 airportbusiness August/September 2018 CONCESSIONS Indianapolis International Airport won second place for its WeWatt bicycles that travelers can use to charge their electronic devices. Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport took third place for Roam Fitness, a gym that offers workout clothes and showers for travelers. Judges were pleased to see so many airports step up with submissions, but disappointed with mistakes and omissions that kept some from being award winning. Things that stood out included: • There weren’t enough applications from Canadian and smaller U.S. airports, so please start preparing your submissions for 2019 • Including video, published media stories/blog posts and social media comments really make a presentation pop with the judges • Abstain from using the same uninspiring, not-enough-information form for multiple submissions. Take the time to do separate applications to tell us your stories • Show us the money! The form asks for it, and that’s a big part of what you’re being judged on • Several entries were entered into the wrong category • If you’re showing off your restaurants and retail, show us a menu or a list of items sold and where it’s located in the airport; and • Please spend the money to take professional photos of your concessions Best New Duty Free Concept 1st Place: DFS Duty Free Pop-up Shops, John F.
