Registration is open and early bird NIA members will get the best deals! NIA-West’s annual Spring Conference allows members and non-members alike a unique chance to enjoy Laguna Beach at its finest and at the same time catch up with colleagues, network with new acquaintances and dig into education sessions that will enlighten, inspire and even provoke.

Experts and industry leaders will be on hand to share information in sessions covering:

ü Game-changing new ingredients

ü High profile business makeovers that deliver real growth

ü Successful exit strategies in 2018

ü The ongoing morphing of the retail landscape…online’s continued explosive growth

ü Sustainability of raw materials. Geopolitical, environmental or quality issues – how to protect your supply chain

ü And more…..much more

If you’ve attended before, you know there is plenty of time to relax as well. Be it a round of golf, an after dinner nightcap or the opportunity to join the hula dancers at our final dinner….we’ve allocated plenty of time for fun! Keep in mind if you plan to attend the annual golf tournament, it is scheduled to kick off the conference on Monday. If you are coming in from out of town, you may want to book your room a day early. Tee time is 11:30 a.m.

For those of you who’ve experienced the Montage in the past, you already know what a special place it is. Boasting the elegance of a fine European hotel while at the same time extending the warmth of California living, this year it will also boast a new look in the main building. And once again we have a terrific room rate for those of you who are NIA members. The Montage has also offered our special member rate for the two days before and after the conference if you have the time extend your stay. The NIA-West member room rate for the conference (as well as for eligible extended nights) is $299/night. First come, first serve.

NIA’s Annual Spring meeting is one of the best opportunities we know of to spend quality time with those you work with, do business with and want to get to know.

We look forward to seeing you at the beach!
