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 2019 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up Presented by United Airlines will be held from February 7-10, 2019 at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel. 


Lodging

The host hotel for the 2019 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up Presented by United Airlines is the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel, the only full-service Marriott in the majestic oasis of Palm Springs, Calif.

Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains where the day's bright sunshine and night's twinkling stars will enamor and amaze, the Renaissance Palm Springs is near the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and is the perfect destination for leisure and business. Enjoy easy access to museums, art galleries, and activities in and around downtown. The chic restaurant, Date, provides an upscale dining experience in a casual setting. Spacious guest rooms offer plush bedding, marble bathrooms and modern technologies for a comfortable night's slumber.

After an action-packed day, enjoy a late-night swim in the heated outdoor pool, one of the desert's largest, or visit the state-of-the-art fitness center. Get cozy in a private cabana and relax under swaying palm trees. And don't forget to treat yourself to a massage or other pampering treatment at Spa Del Sol. The Renaissance Palm Springs offers a desert resort atmosphere with a cosmopolitan flair.

A special NGPA rate of $183/night is available throughout the weekend. Booking is available via the hotel sales office at 760.322.6000 or by clicking the link below.
