The 2017 IPT Annual Conference is headed to Charlotte!

Join us in Charlotte, North Carolina, for IPT’s 41st Annual Conference, July 9 – 12, 2017 at The Westin Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina! Planning for the Conference is underway, and we will use your feedback from the 40th Annual Conference in Traverse City to create meaningful sessions on topics most important to you.

Charlotte is known as the “Queen City” and has a lot to offer summertime visitors. It is home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Carowinds amusement park, the U.S. National Whitewater Center and the Charlotte Independence of the United Soccer League. Charlotte is located several miles east of the Catawba River and southeast of Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in North Carolina. 

There will be many things to do and much to learn at the Conference  and in Charlotte, so mark your calendars for July 9 – 12, 2017, today for IPT’s 41st Annual Conference.
