The NPFDA Annual Convention and Showcase is our signature event, providing unparalleled opportunities for networking within our membership - a resource that is important now more than ever. With over 800 registrants in 2022, the NPFDA Annual Convention & Showcase continues to provide an excellent setting for connecting with your customers, vendors and peers. Registration is available by clicking "registration options" above. A hotel reservations link will be provided after registration is complete. 

The safety of our meeting attendees is paramount. We will follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local governments regarding COVID-19. Should anything change, we will alert the membership and registered attendees as soon as possible.

NPFDA understands that, even with these precautions, not everyone is ready to travel. Our members are responsible for their own decision on whether to attend, and the NPFDA leadership and staff respect their decisions.
