Frequently Asked Questions
In order to meet safely, the NIADA Board of Directors pushed the convention from June to August. The White House is now estimating that every American will have access to COVID-19 vaccination by the end of May. Some medical experts predict the United States will have achieved herd immunity by the end of April. By moving the meeting until August, NIADA members will be able to safely plan and NIADA staff will be able to prepare and market the meeting.
Yes. The August dates were the first available late in the third-quarter. NIADA has contracts for 2022, 2023, and 2024 to meet in June in Las Vegas.
There was no meeting space in our preferred Las Vegas venues in the late third- or fourth-quarters of 2021. San Antonio had availability, and it’s a great convention city. Everything – the hotels, convention center, and the city’s best restaurants – are all an easy stroll away on the River Walk. The hotel – the Marriott River Center – is a short cab ride from the airport.
In 2021, it is inevitable that the NIADA Convention will conflict or abut another meeting. Every national trade association pushed their 2021 meeting to the late third- or fourth-quarter of 2021, NIADA is no different. We did take care to avoid conflicting with known NIADA state affiliate conventions.
