NRG Conference This Week

The 2018 Nautical Research Guild Conference is about to take place, running from October 25 through the 28th at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a first for the NRG, which usually holds the conference in a place of nautical attraction of some type. This year, an attempt was made to hold the conference some place where hotel costs can be kept a little cheaper and flights in and out are cheaper and easier to get. Not everyone is fond of the location, so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

The format of the conference will be the same as usual with local sightseeing tours scheduled for Thursday, and roundtables and seminars scheduled for Friday and Saturday. There is also the membership meeting Saturday afternoon and a banquet dinner later that evening.

A few vendors are scheduled to be in attendance, including our own local Ages of Sail. They include conference regulars BlueJacket Shipcrafters and Train Troll.

We’re getting down to the wire for pre-registration, but you can always register at the door.  For more conference details, visit: https://www.thenrg.org/nrg-2018-conference.php
