Annual Conference & Marketplace

NAPEO’s 2021 Annual Conference & Marketplace
September 27-29, 2021

*Stay tuned for a location announcement soon.*

NAPEO’s flagship event, our Annual Conference & Marketplace, is the largest and most multi-faceted PEO educational and networking event of the year. It is the chance for all of the PEO industry to get together each fall to swap lessons learned and gain insight from expert speakers. You won’t want to miss the classroom learning complemented by interactive discussion forums, a comprehensive trade show, and valuable networking forums. This is the must-attend event for all PEO professionals and industry vendors. Join us this year in the desert! Experience the beauty of the desert at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. From the moment you arrive on the lush resort grounds, you will feel yourself relaxing. Take a dip in the outdoor pools, test your swing on the golf courses or play a set on the tennis courts. Pamper yourself at the day spa and indulge at one of the popular restaurants, when you are not in meetings, of course!

Who Should Attend?
