NA members from every corner of the world are excited about this NA World Convention; help make this world convention one of our most diverse conventions ever. Do not miss out on a convention of a lifetime.

We will be posting information about ground transportation from the airports in Rio shortly.

Why Pre-register?

World Conventions require registration to attend. Rio is a culturally diverse city and we have done our best to offer diverse options for our membership with varying resources. We need registrations to plan effectively for merchandise and meeting space. As we know, a convention center is not free. We have limited packages available for new comers and our aim is to plan WCNA to financially break even. Pre-registration helps us meet our responsibilities and helps ensure that you will not miss out on this convention.
