Hudson Group’s go-go Summer 2014 travel season was made all the more stirring by a series of grand opening events held in a variety of locations over the past few weeks. The speech-making and ribbon-cutting was set against the background of a sizzling construction schedule that involves over 100 spaces – newsstands, bookstores, cafes, specialty retail stores and duty free shops – spread across some 27 airports and transit terminals.

Our scope commands multi-million dollar budgets that are carefully monitored to assure maximum value for our partners.”
