Convention Distinguished Visitors and Speakers

The Airlift/Tanker Association members are very fortunate to have strong support from our senior leadership who attend the convention and participate in our symposium events.

To attend the Symposium and Technology Exposition, you must register. The registration fee covers food and beverage expenses, audiovisual support, meeting room rental fees, administrative cost and other fees associated with running a conference. Except for the Banquet on Saturday night and Sunday brunch, all refreshment events take place in the exhibit hall and, therefore, in and among the exhibits. We prefer that all who attend pay the registration fees for the period they have elected to attend. However, the Association would like to further offer non-AMC invited speakers, arriving and departing on the day of their presentation and not remaining overnight, to attend any non-banquet activities on the day of their presentation. Please call Gary or Sondra Hart at 423-902-2297 to arrange. Please see the Association’s legal opinion/recommendation concerning possible ethical considerations.


AMC Protocol will be available in a limited capacity. Questions may be directed to Ms Desiree Broussard,, or (618) 229-3752.
