RTAG will be hosting our popular annual convention in the fall of 2022. Texas is home to 15 military bases, an easily accessible airport and a strong aviation community, making it the perfect spot to celebrate the inevitable return of this industry. The RTAG Convention will be the last major event for 2022 and will provide civilian recruiters, military representatives, vendors, flight schools, and related sponsors the best convention value possible.
Online Vendor Portal
This year we are introducing the Online Vendor Portal! This will be your one stop shop for the 2022 RTAG National Convention. You will recieve monthly updates for the convention and all of the important schedule and information can be found here.
To all our awesome RTAG partners we are so incredibly thankful for your commitment to our veteran community!!

We are getting closer to the convention and wanted to send out updates to help you prepare. Below you will find many of the most important updates that you will need. Please note that after the timeline there are a few that are very time sensitive for the booths and your drop shipping if needed.

We are working with a third-party company name Freeman that will handle the shipping of booth setup items you may need. They will also handle power requests, extra booth chairs, and flooring options if you would like. Please note that there is limited room in the 10x10 booths so please limit extra chairs to 3 at most.
If you need shipping or any of these items, we will need you to send us your Billing address in email at email@example.com NLT September 5th.
On the week of the 5th you will receive an email from freeman to get you all setup for the shipping and any booth extras you may need.it is important to get this back to them ASAP.
Included in the standard booth setup are Pipe and Drape, Table with black skirting, and 2 chairs. Unless you have already coordinated with us or Freeman to get more
While most of our session times are full, we do have space available if you would like to present in one of our sessions. If we have more interest than spots available, we will issue the spots in order of Sponsorship level and in rare occasions what we think will best aid our veterans.
If you are interested in a session time, please email our breakout coordinator below
We need to know the number of team members you will have in your booth so that we can get your badges set aside. Please send me an email with to firstname.lastname@example.org following the below example:
Subject: (Company Name) Vendor Numbers (i.e. RTAG Vendor Numbers)
Body: How many you are bringing
This is a question that we get often. Those that are RTAG alums know that we design and set the layout ourselves to maximize the space and ease of movement for our Veterans. We are working to complete the layout for this year, and as previous years will have it done a few weeks out from the convention. Don’t worry we will have plenty of volunteers to get you where you need to go.
