National Insulator Association
50th Annual Convention & Show
June 14-16, 2019

General Show Information

Show hosts Jacqueline Linscott-Barnes, Clay Bledsoe and Graham Barnes along with the CFIC invite you to the DoubleTree by Hilton in Orlando, Florida for the golden 50th Annual National Insulator Association Convention & Show. This is the fourth time in fifty years that a National has been awarded to the Orlando area. The show will be held in the DoubleTree Conference Center, a 15,000+ square foot area (one of three conference centers on the DoubleTree's lush 28-acre property). There will be 125+ dealer tables and 25+ display tables.

The hotel and convention center are just part of the large resort complex where we have secured a block of rooms which will help support the show. There is a free shuttle to/from the local attractions within 5 miles of the hotel. The resort has several restaurants, a cafe & lounge, pools (2), health & fitness center, business center and high-speed internet access, all of which are designed to create a warm and tranquil travel oasis while redefining the vacation and meeting experience. Standard room rates for the 2019 NIA Convention and Show are $112.00/night, plus the negotiated resort fee of 11.95 (includes free self-parking (be sure to get your parking pass), wi-fi, transportation to theme parks [except Disney], two bottles of water, complimentary appetizer with purchase of entree and access to hotel amenities) plus the local and state taxes. Please consider staying at the show hotel as room nights help with the cost of the show itself.

Because the convention venue is located in the heart of Orlando's many attractions, your free time and evenings are being left for you to pick and choose the activities most appropriate for you and your family members. Orlando and the surrounding area, has much to offer you and your family, if you choose to spend some extra time in our area. For more information, please visit You will find a variety of multiple water and amusement parks, museums, shopping malls, beaches (nearby), Kennedy Space Center and much more (See the attached of a listing of the attractions.). We also have an I-Drive trolley system on International Drive that offers numerous stops for your convenience.
