(BOISE, Idaho — October 5, 2012) The Night Vision Awards announced this week that they will host their awards at the Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC) Tuesday, October 23 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle in rooms 606 and 607.
The event is open to all attendees of AMTC. Food and drinks will be served during the award show. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are not required. AMTC badges are all that is needed for entry.
“All year long men and women in the Air Medical industry serve their communities,” said Director of Marketing for Aviation Specialties Unlimited Hannah Gordon. “This event is an opportunity to honor them for their contributions to safety. Many awards focus on people. These awards honor entire units for their contributions. We encourage everyone attending AMTC to put the Night Vision Awards on their schedule. What better way is there to end the day of educational sessions and training by fellowshipping and honoring great EMS operators from around North America?”
“Now a highly anticipated event at key industry shows, the Night Vision Awards series provides an important opportunity to celebrate the achievements of organizations demonstrating leadership in use of night vision capabilities,” explained Night Flight Concepts president, Adam Aldous. “We hope attendees at AMTC will join us to both recognize these operators and being inspired by them.”
Nominations are currently being accepted for the Night Vision Awards. Any flight operation using any Night Vision systems is eligible for consideration.
