We look forward to seeing you at the 67th NATA Clinical Symposia & AT Expo June 22-25 in Baltimore! It’s a great opportunity to get a first-hand look at how “We’re Better Together,” the theme of this year’s convention. The premier educational event in athletic training, the convention is also a great opportunity to connect with others in the profession.

Relax, Learn, Connect

Located in the AT Expo, the NATA CONNECT Too! lounge is a great place to catch up with a colleague, learn, or just take a break.

Convention-goers can also visit The Square, a gathering place by professional interest. There you can network and learn from your peers. The Square is located in Swing Hall of the Baltimore Convention Center.




Most convention ribbons can be picked up at the Ribbon Bar near the Information Center located in the Pratt Street Lobby.


Convention Attire

We strongly encourage participants to dress in a manner befitting professionals while attending educational events and exhibits. Business casual – shirts, slacks, skirts and blouses (no jeans or shorts) – is recommended. Learning Lab participants should change into lab attire for the lab and return to business casual wear afterward. For more information, visit the NATA convention website.
