THE NEW PATH CONTINUES

In the last few years, the NACA leadership has taken a hard look at what we can do to maximize the benefits of an in-person conference at a reasonable cost for our members. One overwhelming consideration was how do we create an event that brings in more of our members and guests, while still offering the state-of-the-art training programs we are known for. This took us down many roads of conversation and examination of alternatives to the expensive hotels/venues we’ve used in the past.

This brought us on a search for what other groups our size now do in this new environment. Where does corporate America go for their hands on training events that incorporates convenient and popular locations, ease of travel and the amenities for a successful event?

Our digital travels took us to many US cities where we searched out locations that could offer our members and guests a real change to the mega expensive hotel option.

After much searching, we found such a place in a corner of North Carolina’s “Research Triangle Park” and the home of Duke University. In Durham we found a corporate venue with a state-of-the-art conference and training facility and plenty of reasonably priced corporate and boutique hotel space.  Please spend some time reviewing the information on this page below.

The Durham Convention Center is where corporations like Apple, Google, Garmin, Cree, Meta, Red Hat and the American Institute of CPA’s (AICPA) go to learn and network. The Convention facilities which are attached to the downtown Marriott hotel, are also regular hosts to attendees from around the United States and the world, coming for training, networking and exchanging information with peers. 2024 NACA Conference

 

WHERE TO STAY

There are five corporate level hotels either attached to, just across from or close by the Convention Center. No walk is more than a few minutes. Please see Accommodations below. You get to pick the place that works best for you.

These hotels are a mainstay with the local communities and cater to business travelers. We think you will be impressed that they are in many ways no less amenable to our previous locations but a very favorable nightly rate. Of course, for any attendees looking to more there are dozens of hotels in downtown.

Phone numbers to book your room are on the accommodations page (be sure to scroll down the page).
