The 50th Annual NAOSMM Conference and Tradeshow will be held July 30 - August 4, 2023, at The Sheraton New Orleans Hotel!


Join us July 30 - August 4, 2023 in New Orleans, Louisiana as we celebrate NAOSMM's 50th anniversary! NAOSMM returns to the place where its original charter was signed and the organization was officially born. As always, the program sessions and trade show are going to be excellent. The professional aspects of the conference will be relevant, informative and even inspiring! The opportunities to network with vendors and colleagues and the relationships that come from them are truly priceless. Every member has something to contribute and something to gain.

There will be special reunion focused programming on Wednesday of the conference. We are also offering a unique registration option for lifetime members and “old-timers” who might not want to register for the entire week of the conference.

There is something for everyone at our 50th conference. This conference will be memorable and help take us into the next decades of NAOSMM.
