The theme for 2015 is: “Mobility Airmen: Excellence in Action – Past, Present and Future!”
The annual conventions and symposiums are much like family reunions, as well as a place to nurture personal relationships and spur professional growth. The industry-focused Air Mobility Technology Exposition brings technology, organizations, and people together in a rich and educational exchange of information. Symposium seminars on a wide range of subjects are presented annually to address key issues of air mobility, provide educational opportunities and enhance the professional development of our members. Some seminars are dedicated to heritage and heroes, with many opportunities to share “war stories” with and from everyone, young and old. Young Leader and unit reunions throughout the years have revived and maintained long-standing relationships. Attendees will also hear “State of the Force” presentations from key leaders and attend the presentation of multiple awards recognizing individual and group accomplishments. Professional development of the force occurs from airman to 4-star general, with an extraordinary opportunity to meet, greet and share personally with people of all ranks and backgrounds. There is no other forum quite like it, or a better place to connect, reconnect and celebrate the air mobility mission.
The A/TA Convention is a two-day event starting on Wednesday and ending Thursday afternoon. The Symposium and Technology Exposition is a four-day event starting with an evening reception and ending with an unstructured Departure Brunch on the fourth day. Badges must be worn for all activities, including evening social events. The A/TA Annual Convention registration opens about noon on Wednesday.
Exhibiting at the Airlift/Tanker Association annual convention and Air Mobility Symposium & Technology Exposition is an experience like no other. Exhibitors and attendees are participants together in the airlift and tanker community’s premier event.
We are now officially referring to the exhibit areas as the “AIR MOBILITY TECHNOLOGY EXPOSITION.” There will be more exhibit hours and the pre-banquet reception will be in the exhibit area.
This is the place for you to showcase your services/equipment and interact with the individuals who establish requirements, design, build, operate, maintain and make decisions, on airlift and air refueling aircraft and related systems for USAF.
The Airlift/Tanker Association is a Section 501 (C) (3) e tax-exempt organization dedicated to providing a forum for ensuring that American military forces continue to have the air mobility capability required to implement U.S. national security strategy. The Association is international in scope, with members and chapters throughout the world. Membership includes active duty, guard, reserve and retired military personnel, both officers and enlisted, as well as civilian and industry supporters of the air mobility mission.
