George W. Bush

43rd President of the United States

“President Bush's vast experience and leadership in national and international affairs make him a highly sought-after speaker, and we are honored to showcase him as the centerpiece of our event,” said ILTA President Kathryn Clay. “With his unique background and perspectives, including his own experience in the oil and gas business, President Bush is sure to provide valuable insights on current issues and future trends that will benefit all attendees at the conference.”

President Bush served two terms in the White House and became a wartime President in the aftermath of the airborne terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Bush formed a new cabinet-level Department of Homeland Security and sent American forces into Afghanistan to break up the Taliban. Before becoming president, President Bush enjoyed a long career as a successful businessman, first starting his own oil and gas company, and then serving as a partner in the ownership group of the Texas Rangers baseball team. He also served two terms as Governor of Texas.

Today, President Bush remains actively involved in issues of national and global concern through the George W. Bush Institute, which is operated by the George W. Bush Foundation. He continues to emphasize education, global health, human freedom, and support of the military.

Wildcat Golf Club

Played as a scramble on two courses, the ILTA Golf Tournament provides an ideal setting to strengthen professional relationships and build new ones with your colleagues in the terminal industry.

A favorite of Houston golfers, Wildcat Golf Club has two world-class courses designed by Scottish architect Roy Case. Houston's highest natural land elevations are set amidst the remarkable Highlands course, which couples rolling fairways with fast greens. The more traditional Lakes course boasts spectacular views of Houston. Both offer unique challenges and provide a delightful experience for all skill levels.

The deadline to register for the golf tournament is Friday April 12.
Advance registration for the golf tournament is required and is open to all conference and trade show attendees.
