When does the conference begin?

The conference will begin on Tuesday, May 14th with a coffee mixer at 10:30am, but will officially kick off with a luncheon at 11:30am. We strongly suggest planning to arrive before the luncheon to make sure that you do not miss out. 

The conference will officially end on Thursday, May 16th after the closing night dinner. Attendees will be offered breakfast on Friday, May 17th, but are free to depart Galveston at any time on Friday.

NATJA will make a final schedule available closer to the start of the conference. A preliminary schedule is available here.

NATJA will coordinate with Visit Galveston to arrange transfers from/to Houston Hobby Airport (HOU) and Moody Gardens.

Visit Galveston will provide transfers from/to Houston Hobby Airport (HOU). Only very limited transfers from/to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will be available. If you fly into IAH, you may need to make your own transfer arrangements.

NOTE: Pre or post-press trips may require that media fly into or out of another airport. This information will be provided once press trips are announced.

Please contact NATJA at to make any modifications to your hotel room reservation. NATJA is compiling a rooming list on behalf of all of our attendees, which will be provided to Moody Gardens.

Please provide any final changes for your hotel reservation by Friday, April 12, 2024. Any change requests after that day are at the discretion of the hotel and may incur additional costs to you.

Press trips are coordinated by Visit Galveston and their conference partners. As soon as NATJA receives the details, we will share the information with registered with media attedees.

Once NATJA receives all of the information necessary from Visit Galveston to ensure our attendees are well-informed, we will open up registrations for press trips, afternoon tours, and restaurants.
