Convention and Trade Show

Convention and Trade Show

Our annual convention and trade show brings together nonprofit organizations and land management agencies who work to protect and conserve public lands and enhance the visitor experience. Educational programming is designed to build the capacity of nonprofit public lands partners and to give government leaders the tools necessary to help fulfill their agency missions.

Our trade show is also the best place for companies to sell, promote and market products and services to a national network of buyers from nonprofit organizations supporting national parks, forests, refuges and other public land sites.

Retail store buyers, purchasers of volunteer and donor recognition gifts, decision makers and influencers use this event to shop and learn about products and services to educate, promote and enhance visitor experiences on public lands.

"As a first year convention attendee, I was very impressed and inspired by the Speakers and could truly relate to them with the love that they have for our public lands. I will use this experience to enhance my skills with partners to make our public lands a richer place to visit!"

"The Public Lands Alliance Convention and Trade Show is invaluable to Grand Teton Association. Not only are the educational sessions geared toward our public lands community, the vendors at the trade show know our audience and showcase products that speak to our visitors."
