Attendees routinely praise the CGA Strategic Conference as the most productive and enjoyable networking event of the year. We blend our high-energy educational programming and business meetings with relaxed social events to foster an environment for genuine discussion and quality time in the company of acquaintances new and old.

Get your conference experience off to a swinging start at The Illuminators Golf Tournament, a favorite CGA tradition. Feel the energy Sunday evening as you connect with industry peers at the Opening Night Reception, sponsored by The Kraft Heinz Company and E&J Gallo Winery, then unwind poolside at our after-hours social event. The Illuminators sponsor the ever-popular Special Event on Monday night. Some of these events require separate registration, so be sure to sign up!

“The CGA Strategic Conference is a great industry event that encompasses so many different things. It is a great opportunity for industry professionals and companies to meet in an environment that encourages networking, education and new business opportunities, while still having time for a little fun!”
