Don't Miss Your Chance to Exhibit and Sponsor at NCBFAA's 46th Annual Conference


In just a few short months, the NCBFAA will hold its 46th Annual Conference in San Antonio, TX. For four days, the NCBFAA Annual Conference brings together the nation's leading customs brokers, freight forwarders, NVOCCs, OTIs and other trade professionals to learn about industry challenges, opportunities for growth, and the products and services that will help their business succeed in the coming year. This is your chance to help them accomplish their goals by exhibiting your transportation-related services and products to those willing to buy. But that's not all! Exhibiting at the Annual Conference offers:


  • High visibility at a low cost for your company and products.
  • Free listing in the Annual Conference mobile app.
  • Heightened product interest due to a highly competitive industry.
  • A preview of your competitors' products and services.


Along with these examples, the Annual Conference offers a wide range of networking and social opportunities, like our Annual Sponsored Golf Tournament, the Stewart B. Hauser First-Timer Reception, the Grand Opening of the Exhibitor MarketPlace, the "Board of Directors and Committee Member Meet-and-Greet," the NCBFAA Presents: Fiesta Dinner, and a variety of Outdoor Hospitality gatherings well suited for you to interact with potential clients.


As our past exhibitors will tell you, the NCBFAA Annual Conference is the premier logistics event of the year. With more than 600 of the international trade's top representatives expected to attend from around the United States, your exposure to this prime demographic is priceless. And because the Exhibitor MarketPlace is a critical element of our Annual Conference, exhibitors are in great demand. Attendees have come to expect a great variety of exhibitor organizations and the NCBFAA actively encourages them to visit each of the booths over the course of the event.


Annual Conference Exhibitor registration is open, and all participants are encouraged to register as soon as they can. Booth assignments are "first come, first served," so the best bet for getting the booth of your choice is to register early!


If you anticipate participating in this year's event and have not yet booked your rooms at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, we advise you to do so as soon as possible. Reservation activity to date has been very strong, but there are still rooms available at the NCBFAA's discounted rate of $239 per night for single or double occupancy, plus applicable taxes. Although you may have until March 1, 2019, to enjoy the discount, you should not wait. Make them online by clicking here or calling 1-800-233-1234.


You can count on San Antonio to be bustling with activity before we arrive, while we are there and after we leave, but with this year's Fiesta Festival scheduled to take place April 18 - 28, securing rooms before April 17 could be difficult. Even with our room block encompassing April 11 - April 20, 2019, accommodations for April 14-17 might still be hard to book; not just at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio but at all venues in the city. In the past, those attendees wanting to arrive at the Conference early or stay late to enjoy the locale have generally been able to do so without much difficulty. This year, with the influx of festival goers and tourists, it may be difficult to schedule your extended stay.

Sponsorship Opportunities


For more than 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 seven 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 that have already so generously provided the 2019 Annual Conference with sponsorship funding.
