ITS TIME AGAIN FOR THE BEST STATE ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE IN THE NATION!

The 82nd Annual National Guard Association Conference is celebrating the New Roaring Twenties May 15-17, 2020 at the Golden Nugget Casino and Hotel, Biloxi, Mississippi.  This resort property directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and the Biloxi Bridge with all the resort and local activities you would expect.   Register now at Exhibitor/Patriot Partner Registration

All exhibit booths will be set up in the open areas on the same floor as the business session in the Golden Nugget.  This area will accommodate all prospective exhibitors and give you high visibility because our members will enter the business session through this area.  Exhibitors will set up at 1:00 p.m. on Friday and tear down after the conclusion of the business session on Saturday at approximately 1:30 p.m.  A breakfast for exhibitors will be offered Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. and a box lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m.

Each space is 8’ x 8’ and will include a 6’ table draped with a sign showing the exhibitor/organization name.  The cost of an exhibit space is $400.00.  (Note:  Patriot Partners do not pay this cost.  Not a Patriot Partner or haven’t signed up yet this year?  You can sign up here:  Patriot Partner Sign Up ).  This is part of the cost of renting the area and having the booth prepared for the exhibit area.  This is being offered as a service and is not an income producing activity for NGAMS.
