The North American Gamebird Association will hold its 2017 annual Educational Conference and Convention Jan. 23-25, 2017 at the Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport, Miss.

The decision on where to hold the group’s 85th annual meeting was made after NAGA officials investigated a number of different options based on factors including affordability, access, amenities and area attractions.

Located beachside on the Gulf of Mexico, scenic Island View Resort offers 970 well-appointed rooms and suites. The hotel room rate for the 2017 NAGA convention is the best we’ve had in years at $79 per night during the convention. (The rate is $119 on Friday and Saturday nights). In addition, the Island View was so competitive with its convention costs, that we are able to maintain the same price for the convention as this past year. The rate is $250 if registered on or before the early bird deadline of Dec. 1, 2016, and $275 for those who register after that.

This is a great year to attend the NAGA convention for the first time, or to come back if you have missed lately. With a hotel rate of just $79 per night, attending the NAGA Convention in 2017 is a great bargain for both business and fun!

The convention area is conveniently located a short walk from guest rooms, and the hotel offers a free airport shuttle, ample dining options and numerous guest activities.

In addition, the surrounding area offers even more culinary options, along with a variety of attractions and activities including world-class beaches, golfing, deep sea fishing, shopping and museums.

Getting there is easy, too. Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is served by major airlines including American, Delta, United and U.S. Air. Gulfport is also located just a 1½-hour drive from New Orleans, offering additional travel and sightseeing options.
