AMTC in Charlotte, NC POSTPONED due to declared State of Emergency
September 24, 2016
Hello AMTC Friends –
We are thankful that the ongoing events in Charlotte have remained largely peaceful over the last couple of days, and we continue praying that the situation remains that way for the weekend ahead.
In the 35+ years of the AMTC, the difficult decision to postpone the conference is a first for conference organizers. We want to keep our attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors informed as we continue to work on the reschedule of the AMTC in Charlotte.
At this point, we are continuing our discussions with the city, convention center and conference hotels to find new dates that will align for all the venues in Charlotte. As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts associated with rescheduling an event the size and scope of the AMTC, and we’re excited to report that we’re definitely making progress. We hope to have definitive dates in place by early next week.
Thank you for your patience while we continue the process, and we’d also like to thank the community for the words of encouragement and support since the decision to postpone was made on Thursday.

Dear AMTC Attendee,
AAMS’ major concern is for the safety and welfare of our members, our industry, and patients you serve on a daily basis. Our industry’s premier educational experience and trade show is the Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC). AAMS has been on the ground in Charlotte for the past 24 hours, working very closely with the City, its agencies, and all of our venues to review AMTC’s requirements, safety considerations, and options for continuing as scheduled.
The City of Charlotte, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and our venues have taken every precaution and believe AMTC would be successful as scheduled. However, due to the events of the past 48 hours and the events being planned in Charlotte for the next three to five days, AAMS has made the very difficult decision to postpone this year’s AMTC from its Sept 26-28 dates. We believe continuing as scheduled would detract from AMTC’s world-class educational and networking experiences.
We are working closely with the City of Charlotte to find alternative dates and will keep you informed as more information becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we’ve been navigating the developing situation here in Charlotte.
