National Convention

QDMA will hold its 15th annual National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, at The Galt House on May 8-9, 2015.

The 2015 National Convention will emphasize the excitement of the Louisville area with a more exuberant and fun atmosphere than ever! With the Convention landing on Mother's Day weekend, we wanted to make this Convention a special destination and event for couples and families.

As far as special events go, no competition here! From bourbon tasting to ladies' raffles, themed contests, red roses and a dinner cruise on the Ohio River, you'll score brownie points with this winning lineup  – Convention and a vacation all in one!

Last but never least, there will be great seminars, workshops, hunts, auctions and all your favorite deer and hunting tips that Convention offers each year!

Thank you for your interest in the QDMA National Convention. In 2015, we will be holding a shorter Convention as the event will be hosted immediately following the 2015 North American Deer Summit. Due to the condensed schedule and limited vendor space, we will not host vendor exhibits in 2015. However, we hope you will join us when the National Convention returns to Louisville in 2016.
