NATM is pleased to be headed back to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., for the 31st Annual NATM Convention & Trade Show, Feb. 19 – 21, 2019. This location has yielded three of NATM's largest gatherings to date. The Coronado Springs Resort will not only serve as the host hotel, but as the site of educational sessions, meetings and the trade show. The resort features a pool with a waterslide, hammocks lining a pond, multiple onsite restaurants and free shuttles to nearby Disney World parks.
The discounted NATM rate for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is $165/night. Plan on coming early, staying late and bringing your family! Based on hotel availability, the rate will be available for the two days prior to the convention, as well as the two days post should attendees want to extend their stay. Disney is known for their service and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will not disappoint.
The 2019 schedule of events will be very similar to 2018 but with one major change: the entire show is moving up one day. One of the NATM Convention Committee’s goals is to keep enhancing the program and to make the event more worthwhile every year. NATM hopes with this change attendees will stay longer on the trade show floor and wrap up the convention by attending the closing event on Thursday night.
The golf tournament will be held on Monday, Feb. 18 at a nearby course. The cost to play in the golf tournament is $150 and attendees will be able to sign up when registration opens in early September. Players will be transported to and from the golf course and lunch is included.
Trade show space has opened up to the 2018 sponsors to begin selecting their booths. The opportunity to select space for non-sponsoring exhibitors will begin May 10 and the general membership and non-members will be allowed to choose booth space beginning June 21.

As always, the NATM Convention & Trade Show would not be possible without the support of its generous sponsors. There are sponsorship opportunities available from $500 to $50,000 to fit any budget.
Being a sponsor allows you to select your booth before previous exhibitors and the general membership, as well as provides a wide range of exposure, both electronically on NATM’s website and mobile app and in print on the convention program map. This creates name recognition which helps drive customers to your booth. Watch your email for sponsorship information coming in May!
