What is the National Park Hospitality Assocation?  National Park Hospitality Association (NPHA) members are officially recognized National Park Service concessioners.  NPHA members are exclusively approved to provide lodging, food services, gifts and souvenirs, equipment rentals, transportation and other visitor services in the National Park System.

The businesses serve some 100 million park visitors annually in approximately 160 park units. NPHA members have a combined workforce of nearly 25,000 persons and provide in excess of $1 billion in goods and services to visitors annually. Concessioner marketing and promotion efforts total more than $10 million, and are coordinated with the marketing and promotion efforts of state and gateway communities that equal that amount.

Your membership in NPHA will provide you the opportunity to reach high profile buyers directly to augment your company’s direct sales efforts, increase your visibility and enhance your credibility. You will be helping concessioners improve the visitor experience in national parks and support the National Park Service as well.
