Annual Conference



July 18, 2018

Dear Aviation Professionals:

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 2018 Alabama Airport Conference on September 17-18, 2018.  This year will will be holding our conference in the beautiful city of Mobile, Alabama.  Our conference hotel is the Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa.  If you are able to join us on Sunday, September 16th, we will have our optional welcome reception from 5:00-6:00.

We have invited speakers who will address issues that are important to all airport and aviation professionals.  In addition we will have important updates from key governmental agencies including the FAA and the Alabama Department of Transportation-Aeronautic Bureau.

Our Monday night reception and dinner will promise to be as much fun as last years bar-b-que cook-off event.  This year we will enjoy, “Battle of the Battle House Chefs”, a culinary battle which will highlight some of the best seafood speciality dishes Mobile has to offer as the Renaissance Battle House Mobile plays host to a friendly competition all for our enjoyment.

We hope you can plan to stay through the conclusion of our program, however this year we will be offering up some fantastic prizes throughout our conference.

We are planning a great couple of days for you.  We still have sponsorships available at all levels so please let us know if you would like to be one our valued sponsors.  We welcome exhibitors and have chosen this year to have them placed just outside the session meeting room in the Moonlight Foyer for maximum exposure.

The Alabama Airport Conference offers attendees, exhibitors and sponsors a great opportunity to learn, share, and network.  I look forward to seeing each of you in Mobile!

Keep aviation strong in Alabama.

Mr. Jed Blackwell

President, Aviation Council of Alabama
