The annual conference brings together NATJA media and destination marketing organization members, from all over the world, for three days of professional development, networking, and tours of the host destination. 

Conferences provide members an excellent opportunity to enhance their skills through immersive professional development while also discovering the “hidden gem”  that is the host destination. At our annual meetings, media and CVBs/DMOs have the opportunity to mix and mingle throughout the scheduled events, from the development sessions to tours and dinner activities.
