Closing Reception

Thursday, September 27 | 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

The TMA Annual knows how to throw a Closing Reception. No ballrooms. No drink tickets. No long bar lines. That means ample opportunities for networking, while experiencing a venue unique to our host city. 


We went to the coolest place off ice, The Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. 

We've shown you a world-class rodeo at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth.

You got VIP seats to Disney's Epcot Illuminations fireworks display in Orlando. 


This year, in honor of the 30th Anniversary of TMA, we are taking over the U.S. Olympic Training Center. One main highlight will be live athletic demonstrations!


Staging, pick-up, and drop off for the Closing Reception will occur at the West Building of The Broadmoor.
