Leading Through What's Next


The conference education team has put together a stellar program for this year's event, with 25 individual workshops to choose from featuring more than 30 presenters. Speakers this year include experienced NATA members, previous conference favorites, and plenty of new faces sharing new ideas.

When you register for this year's event you'll be asked to tell us which sessions you might be interested in. This is going to help the team with meeting room assignments at the venue, but you will NOT be locked into these choices. You may change them at any time by updating your registration, or you may just choose something else when you arrive at the conference. No worries!

Check out the speaker bios and workshop descriptions here.

Opening Night Fun!

Join us after the Opening Banquet for a rousing live version of Who Knows One?!

Each game of Who Knows One? is an opportunity to reconnect with people we care about, make new friends and connections, and reinforce the notion that we are part of something larger than ourselves. It’s truly a soul-nourishing experience.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

Guess what? You don't have to be a NASCAR fan to have a blast at the NASCAR Hall of Fame!

Challenge your friends to a race in the simulator, join a pit crew competition, broadcast a race, learn about the history of racing, and so much more. We will have the entire place to ourselves so join us for yummy treats and fun with friends.
