All-new NFCA Convention App revealed

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The NFCA is excited to announce the debut of the NFCA Convention App, a new feature for the 2016 Convention in New Orleans. It’s an opportunity for attendees to have all convention related items available to them in the palm of their hand after downloading the app to your IPhone, IPad or Android device.

The all-new app will be your guide to everything going on during the week. You can read speaker bios and get information on topics, your favorite activities and exhibitors, plus easily locate everything with maps of the hotel and exhibit hall as well as preloaded geo locations for the airport, hotel, offsite convention activities (House of Blues & University of New Orleans) and some city hot spots (Café Du Monde, Jackson Square).

“The NFCA Convention App is best new feature we have ever launched for our Convention,” said Executive Director Carol Bruggeman. “Attendees will have up-to-date information on “all things Convention” at their fingertips. The NFCA strives to be cutting-edge in all we do and the Convention App provides that with an exciting new experience surrounding our big event.”

Personalize the Convention schedule to make sure you don’t miss an important meeting, speaker or event, read speaker outlines and committee agendas in advance, take notes, interact with other attendees and get easy access to the NFCA’s social media feeds. You can even arrange an Uber to see a little of New Orleans culture after the day of learning has ended.

The convention kicks off on Wednesday Dec. 7 and runs through Saturday, Dec. 10 at the New Orleans Marriott.


For those arriving on Tuesday, Dec. 6 and who want to beat the crowd, a four-hour window (Noon-4:00 p.m.) is available to pick up your credentials. The registration booth will be open 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7 and Thursday, Dec. 8. On Friday, Dec. 9 and Saturday, Dec. 10, the booth opens at 8:00 a.m. and closes at noon and 10 a.m., respectively.
