2019 Ag Aviation Expo Pre & Post-Expo Orlando Fun & Disney Travel Agent Available to Assist

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 NAAA Ag Aviation Expo in Orlando, Nov. 18-21 at Rosen Shingle Creek. Our hotel room block is nearly 80% full; thank you for booking your hotel room. If you have not already done so, please book your room today. Registration is also open for the Ag Aviation; register online or print and mail a registration form.

NAAA staff and the Convention Committee have organized one of the best industry conventions that NAAA has ever organized. NAAA, along with our sponsors and exhibitors are putting a lot of money into the 2019 Ag Aviation Expo; we appreciate you attending our events during convention hours. When you have a free night at the expo or if you plan to travel before the expo or stay for a couple of days following the expo, enjoy the wonderful attractions of Orlando.

Disney Travel Agent Assistance

If you would like to add a pre- or post-conference stay at Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando Resort, Ag Aviation Expo attendees may contact Pam Townsend, travel agent and owner of Neverland Destinations. With two years as a tour guide at Walt Disney World and five years as a travel agent specializing in Universal and Disney destinations, Pam will help you plan your schedule around the conference using the special rate tickets for conference attendees.  She can assist with hotel selection (night of 11/16 or before this date and 11/22 and after the Ag Aviation Expo), dining reservations, Fastpass+ suggestions, and more for a seamless, worry-free, and magical theme park vacation.  Please feel free to email her at
