Like many other associations across the country, the coronavirus pandemic has forced the National Plasterers Council Conference to go virtual. Registration is now open.
NPC will open the 2021 event with its Welcome/Business Session at 10 am CST on Wednesday, Feb. 10, and continue the day with six outstanding educational sessions. On Thursday, Feb. 11, another six classes will be offered. Jay Eaton, auctioneer extraordinaire, will continue the NPC auction tradition with a daily live auction.
The event will operate from a proven digital platform that many NPC members have used over the years at its conferences: Whova. The platform will allow attendees to view the presentation from any digital device. Users can go in and out of sessions and visit exhibitor webpages that can be manned live during the conference. Sponsors will have a range of options to showcase their brand, commitment to the NPC and show off their company on their personalized page. The format will allow for members to chat with each other throughout the conference and even ask questions during the presentations.
Your paid registration will gain you access to the conference and allows you to view any of the conference sessions for up to 30 days after the event. So, if you get interrupted during the show, you can always come back and see it later.
Your registration also helps NPC to cover the costs that come with producing the show. Additionally, the annual Conference is the NPC chief source of revenue for its budget. "Your contribution, whether through registration, exhibiting or sponsorship, all will help fund the many things NPC does for our industry, and that's good business for you," the organization says.
