September 26-28, 2019
Albuquerque Marriott Uptown

Come join us in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico! Fall is a wonderful time to visit. The weather is gorgeous in September, and there are so many activities in which to participate and sights to see. We will probably still be roasting green chile, and the air will be redolent with its scent.

Whether you enjoy boutique shopping, hitting the trails, touring museums, or enjoying the wildlife or the nightlife, Albuquerque will enchant you. Hike our most difficult trails-La Luz and Chimney Canyon-or take one of the many walking paths in the foothills or along the Rio Grande. If you enjoy birdwatching, you won't want to miss early mornings at the Valle del Oro National Wildlife Refuge.

Please stay tuned for events and ideas on how to maximize your enjoyment in our inviting, artistic, active, and dynamic city!
