NCA 2014 Annual Meeting & Tradeshow


The National Candle Association will host the
2014 Conference & Expo at the Louisville Marriott Downtown, in Louisville, KY. Since its first gathering in 1974, the NCA has held informative meetings aimed at increasing the knowledge of participants on all aspects of the industry, and a focus on promoting candle safety, product advancement and sustainability. Celebrating 40 Years in the Winner’s Circle will offer technical presentations and workshops that explore a variety of issues impacting the candle business. At the Expo, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with suppliers, and gain valuable information while networking with industry peers.



The Louisville Marriott Downtown is in an ideal location, providing guests with easy access just eight miles from Louisville International Airport. The hotel is within a few blocks of the Fourth Street Live Entertainment District where visitors can experience Louisville's vibrant night life. There's also the Urban Bourbon Trail for those interested in sampling spirits, and the emerging East Market District, also known as NuLu.
