The 2021 NMEA Conference & Expo is largest industry trade event in the world focusing strictly on marine electronics from recreational, commercial, and government sectors. Highlights of the event include a two-day expo where many manufacturers will introduce new products for 2022. Additionally, manufacturers will offer technical training sessions during the week on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. The NMEA Product of Excellence Awards Banquet will take place on Thursday evening, Sept. 23, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
Please know that the safety of our attendees and exhibitors who choose to attend is our #1 priority. For the safety of all our guests and their families and friends, masks will be required for attendees who are not fully vaccinated. NMEA is monitoring the situation as it is changing daily and may put additional safety protocols in place that are appropriate at the middle of September.
Hotel reservations are now open. NMEA have negotiated a group hotel rate of $140 per night (all in cost including taxes and fees) at the Orlando Doubletree Universal Hotel. Attendees are encouraged to make reservations as soon as possible as the room block is anticipated to sell out. NMEA will cover day and overnight parking costs for all attendees. For Government Employees, the NMEA negotiated rate is lower than the published government rate for stay at the hotel.
Attendee registration is now open. Attendees can choose from a full registration valid for all 5 days, or can purchase up to 2 single day passes. Please note that companions, spouses, and families are welcomed so they can enjoy the nearby Orlando activities! Exhibitor staff get one full registration included with their booth purchase. Additional booth staff can be purchased at $195 per person.
Any NMEA member can gain company exposure and sponsor any part of the 5 day event. A full list of sponsorship opportunities for any size company and budget are listed on the sponsor tab.
Attendees can fly into the Orlando International Airport which is located 20 minutes from the Doubletree Universal Hotel. The hotel does not have an airport shuttle, so guests are encouraged to use a taxi, private transportation, Uber, or Lyft.
