NFRA is proud to be hosting its 68th annual Conference & Trade Show on October 23 – 25, 2017 at the Peppermill Hotel in Reno, Nevada.

This is the best conference of its kind for resorts, campground concessionaires, marinas, stores, youth camps, pack stations and other recreation businesses who operate on public lands. Top recreation leaders from land management agencies and the recreation industry convene to learn about new programs and trends in the recreation industry. NFRA members in good standing are eligible for discounted registration fees.

The conference provides permit holders excellent networking opportunities with vendors, other businesses and with agency recreation leaders from throughout the country. It is an invaluable venue in which to gain technical skills that will enable increased business techniques and opportunities. Collaborative sessions to enhance interaction between agencies are always a popular feature of the conference.

Government attendees – from the Forest Service, BLM, county and state agencies – learn about Recreation Special Uses policies, updates and benefits. Speakers cover topics from building business skills; ideas to develop and improve partnerships; and innovations in technology.
