Convention and Trade Show

About the Convention

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. The program 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.

The 2018 Convention and Trade Show will take place February 25 – March 1, 2018 in Palm Springs, California at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel and Palm Springs Convention Center

Next February, we're convening in Palm Springs, California and invite public land nonprofits and land management agency staff from all federal and state public lands to join us for a great week of networking and learning.
