New Ideas Annual Conference


September 17-19, 2017
Marriott Marquis Houston
Houston, Texas

New Ideas brings together close to 500 association executives and suppliers from all aspects of association management. Share your knowledge with your peers at unique and entertaining social gatherings, discover new ways to tackle your biggest challenges through expert-led education, and engage with people who share your same role at their association.

From thought-provoking education, unique networking opportunities, or en route to an excursion… you never know where your next “New Idea” may materialize.

UPDATE AUGUST 28, 2017:
The 2017 New Ideas Annual Conference, scheduled for September 17-19 in Houston, is still on track to take place at the Marriott Marquis.

TSAE is in contact with both the Marriott Marquis and Visit Houston and we look forward to supporting the city and their hospitality community any way we can after this devastating storm. Read more
