T-minus two weeks from the 2023 CD/NLA Show in Orlando, and we couldn’t be more excited. With attendance numbers tracking to be among the best we’ve had for our autumn event, our preregistration is clocking in at 10 percent more than our 2022 D.C. show. While we’re looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and familiar faces, we’re particularly thrilled to see so many new and smaller operators joining us this year. We have a ton in store for you!
In addition to all the daytime sessions, roundtables, and networking activities that are included with your CD/NLA Show registration, we also know how to have a good time. In past years, our Halloween costume parties have been legendary in the industry, with our attendees going full tilt with costumes that are wild, spooky, and hilarious. After all, kids shouldn’t have all the fun! We’re looking forward to another spooktacular costume extravaganza this year on Monday night, October 23, at 9:30 p.m., courtesy of sponsors ANB Trans, Centennial Worldwide Transportation, and Crown Worldwide Transportation. We encourage attendees to get creative and tap into their inner ghoul to conjure up their best looks for a heart-pounding evening of spooks and thrills. We’ll be making spirits fright with our bewitching drinks at an open bar and devilishly delectable fare while you dance the night away to our pulse-pounding DJ’ed music. Mingle with your fellow attendees, snap a few photos in our photo booth, and forge relationships that will endure long after the masks come off.
While you’re in Florida, why not take the opportunity to support a good cause while having a little fun? We are pleased to announce the return of the CD/NLA Charity Golf Outing in honor of Tom Mazza on Wednesday, October 25, at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club, which is just minutes away from the Gaylord Palms. Tom was a beloved industry consultant, former executive director of the NLA, and a dear friend to the NLA and CD, and all money raised will be donated to a cause that was important to him.
The 10:00 a.m. shotgun start includes a light breakfast and lunch after the event, as well as prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, and more. Registration is $169 per person ($175 onsite, if space allows), and you can sign up individually or as a foursome. Club rentals are also available. The Golf Outing has attracted a great deal of interest, leaving just 12 spots remaining. However, if you aren’t a golfer but want to support the event, consider being a hole sponsor for just $200. At this time, 20 sponsorship slots are available. Don’t miss out on your chance to hit the links while channeling the memory of a great friend to the industry.
There’s plenty more happening at the CD/NLA Show this October 22-25 in Orlando. For a full lineup of our events, plus details on registration and accommodations, visit cdnlashow.com for more information.
