RTI 2017 Annual Celebration

To celebrate the ecosystem of Tarrant County, RTI will be hosting an event on Sunday, November 12, 2017, from 1 pm — 6 pm, at the Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork, in Fort Worth, Texas. The event will exhibit a sub-orbital rocket ship, provided by Exos Aerospace based in Caddo Mills, Texas. A panel discussion of female leaders, including Miss Texas 2017 Margana Wood, presentations by local entrepreneurs, fun and games, and entertainment will round out the event.

With the proximity to the high-end retail center of the Shops at Clearfork, we anticipate additional foot traffic, outside of those invited by RTI.
