Annual Conference & Trade Show

June 10-15, Pittsburgh, PA
Join NENA next year at the 25th Annual Conference and Trade Show, held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA., from June 10 – 15, 2006. With a reach of more than 1,200 9-1-1 professionals nationwide and abroad, NENA will continue to serve all industry attendees with exceptional sessions, engaging keynote speakers, special events and a grand exhibit hall.

Technical Development Conference

The Technical Development Conference (TDC), held every March, is a working session in which 9-1-1 professionals converge to discuss and plan new technical standards for the 9-1-1 industry.  The three-day event is the catalyst for widely-adopted NENA Technical Standards.  The TDC is a workshop and there are no exhibits or vendor presentations.

9-1-1 Center Operational Development Conference

The 9-1-1 Center Operational Development Conference focuses on the “best practices” in 9-1-1 center operations and management. The ODC conference is for the busy 9-1-1 center manager, supervisor or decision-maker.  Attendees have the unique opportunity to learn from industry peers and help shape national policy and standards for 9-1-1 center operations.

Geospatial Integration for Public Safety Conference

On behalf of the National Emergency Number Association and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association, please accept our invitation to exhibit at the 1st Annual Geospatial Integration for Public Safety Conference (GIPSC)! The first event of its kind, GIPSC brings together GIS professionals, addressing coordinators, 9-1-1 and emergency response specialists to one place for opportunities in networking and learning. As an exhibitor, you’ll gain increased exposure and brand recognition among your target audience, and you’ll have the chance to mix and mingle with potential clients at the special Networking Reception in the Exhibit Hall. We look forward to seeing you there!

Critical Issues Forums

NENA hosts several Critical Issues Forums each year to inform and educate industry professionals about important national issues that challenge 9-1-1.  While CIF topics vary, the forums are usually attended by individuals from both the public and private sectors of the industry.  Many CIFs include in-depth discussion about these important issues.

NENA Chapter Conferences

Many of NENA’s 48 chapters in North America hold their own Annual Conference and Trade Show events. These events are planned and executed independently, so check the link at left for dates and contact information.
