Next year’s Annual Conference will be held from 9–12 November at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. With sunny weather and a newly-remodeled convention resort, combined with the robust offerings of the technical program, exhibits, presentations, and networking that Annual Conference attendees can expect, the 2020 conference promises to be a can’t-miss event.
Coronado Springs Resort is themed after Spanish, Mexican, and Southwest American cultures. The resort is built around Lago Dorado, providing numerous opportunities for relaxing lakeside experiences. The new Gran Destino Tower will welcome attendees to the convention center with its distinctive style. The resort features four full-service restaurants, including the new Tolédo, a rooftop restaurant that offers Spanish-inspired cuisine along with views of the Walt Disney World Resort. The resort also includes four quick-service dining options, four swimming pools, two fitness centers, spa and salon services, and a full-service business center.
With complimentary bus transportation to any of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, conference attendees will have the opportunity to explore both new and classic offerings of this travel destination. Some new attractions that will be opening or debuting in 2020 include the new nighttime show HarmoniUS and an attraction based on the Disney•Pixar film Ratatouille called Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, both at Epcot. The first major ride themed after Mickey Mouse, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, will be debuting in 2020 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. The conference will also be taking place during the same time period as Epcot’s famed International Food & Wine Festival.
The conference will bring the latest NDT knowledge and the chance to connect with fellow students, scholars, and practitioners, all in a premier travel destination. Save the date for 9–12 November 2020!
