Welcome to a Completely New Experience
While you may be used to coming to NACA, this fall NACA comes to you.
NACA® Virtual is a completely new NACA experience that will be hosted on a platform that enables you to participate from a computer or smartphone in networking and learning opportunities, engaging showcases, block booking, and yes, an interactive marketplace. While we could never replicate the feeling of reconnecting in-person with old friends and colleagues at a fall regional conference, we will try to give you the best of the Association in a new unique format, designed for you to learn, engage, and do business. This is not your average conference turned webinar.
These two new NACA® Virtual conferences will be held on
Oct. 2-4, 2020 and
Oct. 9-11, 2020. You can choose the conference that works best for your schedule.
We know every dollar counts and you want to get the most value out of every expenditure you make right now. We want to make sure you know the full value of that investment and the return you can expect to receive. At each NACA® Virtual you will get:
20 Hours of Programming:
That's less than $10 per programming hour when you break it down across the multi-day conference.
