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.


Lodging

The host hotel for the 2020 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up Presented by United Airlines is the Riviera Palm Springs, featuring 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.

A special NGPA rate of $169/night is available throughout the weekend. Special NGPA concessions include:

• Waived Resort Fee (standard is $35 per room per night)
• Complimentary wifi in guest rooms
• Complimentary self-parking
• Complimentary access to the fitness center
• 20% off Azure Spa 50- to 80-minute treatments (excluding Saturday)

Booking is available online or by calling the hotel directly at 760-327-8311.

Please note: When you make your reservation, the hotel booking engine will show a "resort fee" of $35 per night. However, this will be waived upon check-in. The Riviera will charge attendees one night's room and tax at the time of booking, refundable within 14 days of arrival.

If you have any additional questions with the hotel or reservations, please send an email to registrations@ngpa.org.


Regarding the Riviera's Marriott exit:

Greetings Members!

As we prepare for the 2020 Winter Warm-Up and Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines, we’re preparing for our largest turnout ever and have exciting news to share.

We were recently notified that the Riviera Palm Springs is leaving the Marriott brand and will be independently managed. The new owners are delighted to welcome our NGPA family to their property, and in conjunction with this change, the new NGPA rate will be $169/night, excluding taxes.

In addition to the new, lower rate, NGPA members will also receive these benefits:

• Waived resort fee (standard is $35 per room, per night)
• Complimentary guest room Wi-Fi
• Complimentary self-parking
• Complimentary access to the fitness center
• 20% off Azure Spa 50- to 80-minute treatments (excluding Saturday)

Our event planning volunteers have spent hundreds of volunteer hours preparing for the 2020 Winter Warm-Up and Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines. We’re confident The Rivera Palm Springs will provide a fresh resort experience, larger space, and a great way to kick off our 30th anniversary celebration.

Moving forward:

• If you have already booked a reservation, it is still intact and no further action is required. If you would like to call the hotel directly to reconfirm, that is at your discretion.
• If you would like to make a new reservation, continue to use the existing booking link. After the Dec. 20 transition, a new booking link will be generated and posted at www.ngpa.org.
• As always, you may call the hotel directly (760-327-8311) for help with both new and existing reservations.

Registration for the 2020 Winter Warm-Up and Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines will open in just a few days, but in the meantime, start packing those bags—and don’t forget your swimming suit!

If you have any additional questions, please events@ngpa.org.

Thank you,
