The NBEA 2021 Annual Convention will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the New Orleans Marriott, March 30 – April 2.

There will be a streamlined convention schedule with an abundance of concurrent sessions that guarantee something for everyone, keynote speakers to spark your passion and drive, and new networking opportunities including a Grand Welcome Reception to be held inside the Tradeshow on Wednesday evening, a combined NBEA/BERC Awards Luncheon, and evening networking events (tickets may be required).

What events require additional/optional ticket purchase?
Why does virtual attendance registration the same cost as live registration?
Regardless of whether you are attending virtually or in person, the sessions are being broadcast on location and NBEA is committing to substantive expense to facilitate a virtual option to the conference. Although it may seem that the cost of putting on a virtual event could cost less than a live event, NBEA will be incurring substantial costs for sponsoring a number of session facilitators who will be in charge of setting up and hosting each onsite session. However, virtual attendees can also consider the substantial savings in travel and lodging.
