  • 2021 Conference

We are so excited to be welcoming you to our 2021 CNPA Conference this week, and wanted to share a few updates and changes with you.


Our event will now be hosted in the Uncas Ballroom level of the Sky Convention Center (see attached map for more detail, noted with a pink star). Our lecture hall will be set up in Salon B1, and our vendor exhibition hall will be located right next door in Salon B2.


The Riverview Parking Garage (next to the Mohegan Sun Arena) is the most convenient place to park, although valet service for the hotel’s main entrance is also available. This is marked with a yellow star on the map.


To minimize waste, water bubblers will be available for you to fill reusable water bottles, so please bring along a water bottle if you feel so inclined.
