Registration is Now Open for the 2018 NCBFAA Annual Conference!
Registration for NCBFAA's Annual Conference is now open! Our 45th NCBFAA Annual Conference, being held April 29 - May 2 at the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, in Rancho Mirage, CA, looks to be our biggest and best event yet! For four days, this year's Conference, themed "Excelling in an Age of Evolution," will bring together the nation's leading customs brokers, freight forwarders, NVOCCs, OTIs and service providers to learn about industry challenges, growth opportunities, products, services and more from government leaders and leading subject matter experts.
All current NCBFAA Members and potential Regular, Affiliate and Associate Members are invited to join their colleagues at the 2018 NCBFAA Annual Conference. It's the perfect opportunity to connect with peers, new and old, discover tips and tricks to make your business more efficient and stay ahead of industry developments before your competitors do!
Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa
Located in the heart of the Palm Springs valley, the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa offers Conference attendees the perfect escape, with its picturesque mountain views, its secluded location and its proximity to luxurious Palm Spring attractions. If you love to golf, you're in luck as the Westin's Palm Spring golf resort features two championship golf courses available to its guests. If golf isn't your thing, well, that's okay too. You're just steps away from the best museums, restaurants, shopping destinations and adventures Palm Springs has to offer. The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa also boasts a one-of-a-kind specialty spa, a premium workout facility, three gorgeous pools and much, much more!
Make sure to make your reservations early, as the hotel is sure to sell out quickly. The NCBFAA has secured a special room block rate of $229 + tax per night for this event. Additionally, Palm Springs is host to the Stagecoach Festival, scheduled to take place April 27 - 29. This influx of festival goers will make it hard to not only find rooms at our resort, but at hotels and resorts all across the area. We strongly recommend making reservations now to avoid any complications in the future.
New This Year!
Some new and exciting changes have been made to this year's Conference format to better suit the needs of our attendees! After the success of the Government Affairs Conference and the positive feedback we received, we've decided to update the Annual Conference format to give attendees more choices on how best to spend their time. There will be more panels and sessions than we've ever offered before. We've listened to your suggestions and have incorporated the NEI Workshop into the Conference program. We've extended hospitality hours giving you ample time to network with colleagues and peers without feeling rushed. For our Monday Luncheon, Jeff Moulton, Executive Director for the Transformational Technologies and Cyber Research Center of the Louisiana State University, will be our Keynote Speaker. For more details on what's new at this year's Annual Conference, or for general Conference information, be sure to read our Conference FAQ!
For over 40 years, the NCBFAA Annual Conference has been recognized as one of the premier transportation logistics events in the country. We pride ourselves on delivering to attendees the most diverse set of panels, speakers, workshops and events year after year. But we can't do that by ourselves. We need support and contributions from generous sponsors to help achieve this goal. Annual Conference Sponsorship is not a one-way street, as your participation holds many benefits for you as well. With six different levels of sponsorship, there are opportunities for every company regardless of size. A key benefit of sponsorship is recognition, not only by the NCBFAA but also by all those attending the Annual Conference, of your involvement in our event. The NCBFAA expresses its gratitude for every sponsor by acknowledging and recognizing each sponsor as soon as the sponsorship commitment form is received and throughout the Annual Conference.
The NCBFAA wishes to especially thank these companies who have already so generously provided the 2018 Annual Conference with sponsorship funding.
