NGAT Conference

The 64th Annual NGAT Conference is headed to Irving, Texas. We were originally scheduled to hold our Conference in Irving back in 2020 but due to the spread of COVID-19 in Irving, Texas it had to be cancelled.  We are exciting to go back because Irving has so much to offer. The Conference will be held at the Irving Convention Center that is located adjacent to our host hotel the Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. The location is one of the best we have had in many year as it is right next to the Toyota Music Factory that is filled with food, entertainment, movies, music and something for everyone.
