NAPEO’s 2021 Annual Conference & Marketplace


NAPEO’s flagship event, our Annual Conference & Marketplace, is the largest and most multi-faceted PEO educational and networking event of the year. It is the chance for all of the PEO industry to get together each fall to swap lessons learned and gain insight from expert speakers. You won’t want to miss the classroom learning complemented by interactive discussion forums, a comprehensive trade show, and valuable networking forums. This is the must-attend event for all PEO professionals and industry vendors. Join us this year in beautiful hill country! Nestled amid 600 acres of oak-covered hills, JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is a luxury haven within a stunning landscape. After a busy couple days of meetings, savor delectable fare at one of the six resort restaurants, or rejuvenate your wellbeing at the luxury spa.
