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 2017 Convention and Trade Show will take place February 12 – 16, 2017 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia
Why Should You Go?
The Public Lands Alliance Convention and Trade Show is your one opportunity this year to engage in high level conversations and community discussions with your peers and leaders from land management agencies and nonprofit partners. For the first time ever, we are convening in our nation's capital so that you may engage directly with policy makers and elected officials as a new Administration and Congress begin.
Through our educational sessions, talented partnership practitioners and subject matter experts, we will help you explore new ideas, develop skills and create valuable connections that support your mission. At our trade show, you'll meet socially responsible businesses who have products and services to enhance your visitor services. In addition, you'll have opportunities to see partnerships in action through our educational field trips and our day spent on Capitol Hill.
