The Winter Warm-Up is the NGPA’s flagship West Coast event, which is held at the beginning of the year and is by far our largest yearly gathering. Warm weather, a uniquely Southwest landscape, and miles of blue skies make Palm Springs the perfect spot for a mid-winter fly-in.

The 2020 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up will be held from February 6-9, 2020.  Come back soon for further updates.


The host hotel for the 2020 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up is the Riviera Palm Springs, a Tribute Portfolio Resort featuring with superb service, generous amenities and stylish accommodations.

Room amenities include lush linens, marble bathrooms, mini-refrigerators, flat-screen TVs, ample desks and free Wi-Fi; many offer balconies or terraces with impressive views. Luxury suites benefit from jetted tubs, fireplaces, and sleeper sofas. Riviera restaurants and lounges offer tantalizing California cuisine and craft libations that will satisfy nearly every craving.

Take advantage of outdoor pools (said to have attracted Sinatra and the Rat Pack), the gym and free parking. And when you need to recharge, schedule time at the amazing Azure Spa and Salon.
