Corporate Cup of Excellence Awards


The Corporate Cup of Excellence Awards are given annually to companies that have made recent significant contributions and improvements to AAAE and the airport industry.  Winners are recognized during the Annual AAAE Conference & Exposition each year.

Beginning in 2014, to ensure all companies are considered - no matter how large or small - AAAE began honoring up to three awardees, ONE corporate cup award per category. For example, a company with five employees and marginal revenues may have impressed you just as much or more than one with thousands of employees and large profits.
  • Large-sized firms: More than $75 million per year in airport-related business revenue 
  • Medium-sized firms: $10,000,001-$74,999,999 per year in airport-related business revenue
  • Small-sized firms: Less than $10 million per year in airport-related business revenue

AAAE staff matches the organization nominated with the appropriate category. Note: A company is eligible to win every five years.
