About NATA 2022

We are elated to be planning the return of the in-person NATA convention! There is no substitution for the face-to-face experience, where you can reunite with friends and colleagues, engage with exhibitors and get your hands on the latest athletic training products.

For those unable to attend in-person, NATA 2022 On-Demand delivers a modified convention experience at a time and place convenient for you.

The 73rd NATA Clinical Symposia & AT Expo in-person and on-demand early registration rate deadlines have extended to July 1 for in-person and October 31 for on-demand.

Learn more about NATA 2022 programming, the benefits of attending in-person as well as maximizing your return on investment when we’re finally Reunited At Last in Philadelphia on June 28 – July 1.

*Be sure to read the Health & Safety statement for attendance requirements before registering and reserving your housing.
