Nautical Systems User Conference 2021

September 14, 2021 - September 16, 2021

21st Annual NS Global User Conference


Safety is at the heart of what we do—a commitment we take seriously as it affects our employees and clients alike. As offices reopened and travel restrictions lifted, we were hopeful that 2021 would bring a return to “normal” by late summer. Unfortunately, with the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases, especially the Delta variant, plans have quickly changed.

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person NS User Conference in New Orleans, LA, and transition to a 100% virtual event. Although our time in person this September has been postponed, we're excited to host another successful virtual event! 

If you require assistance with registration refunds, hotel cancellations or have any additional questions, please contact us today.

We're Going Virtual!
