Future sites selected for NCAA Convention

Event's first visit to Phoenix among six host sites awarded

The NCAA Convention will make its first visit to Phoenix in 2024 during a decade in which the event will return to five other regular host sites for the annual gathering of the Association’s nearly 1,100 member schools.

The NCAA announced today agreements to host the Convention in San Antonio, Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., Anaheim, California and Nashville, Tennessee, from 2020 through 2027. Nashville (2017), Indianapolis (2018) and Orlando (2019) will host the next three Conventions.

The NCAA Convention is held annually in January and brings more than 3,000 attendees to the four-day event each year to learn about issues that impact college sports, chart the course for the NCAA’s three divisions and celebrate the successes of student-athletes. As the place where the Association’s leaders of higher education and athletics gather, the Convention also includes the annual State of the Association and the NCAA Honors Celebration, where the Association presents its most prestigious awards to individuals who are examples of exceptional leadership, courage and inspiration.

Site location choices are based on a number of factors, including the number of sleeping rooms available, the desirability of the location and ease of travel.
