NTSB Conference Center

The NTSB Conference Center is the primary location for the National Transportation Safety Board's Board meetings, public hearings, training, public forums, symposiums, and other events.

The Conference Center may also be rented for other functions. The facility consists of a theater-style auditorium and three separate conference rooms, all equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual components.

Directions to the NTSB Conference Center >

The NTSB Board Members regularly conduct Board Meetings to discuss and adopt accident reports, special investigation reports, safety studies, and other Board products. The public and media are welcome to view the proceedings in person or via webcast. As part of its investigation into certain accidents, the Safety Board may hold a public hearing to record evidence presented by persons involved in the accident and by parties to the investigation.

The NTSB also occasionally conducts public forums, symposia, and other meetings to focus attention and gather information about safety issues. These events focus on specific safety issues that have been a factor in past accident investigations and will likely be issues in future accidents unless the transportation community takes action. The formats of these events vary, but all are designed to advance the knowledge of meeting participants and to stimulate interest in the safety issue. The public and media are welcome view the proceedings in person or via webcast.

Webcast

NTSB public events are also streamed via live webcast. Webcasts are archived for a period of 3 months from the date of the meeting. Webcast archives are generally available by the end of the event day for public meetings, and by the end of the next day for technical conferences.

Webcasts of meetings that occurred after October 1, 2018, are also available on the NTSB YouTube channel (without closed captioning)
