The convention host hotel will once again be the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport. We were disappointed that we had to cancel our 2020 Convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic and missed seeing all of our many industry partners and friends. The 2021 Convention Committee has been hard at work to make sure this year’s Convention is bigger and better than ever, and as always, presented with GPLA’s legendary style and hospitality! It’s sure to be a party you won’t soon forget!

2021 GPLA Scholarships Update

GPLA has made the decision to increase the number of Scholarships offered for our 2021 convention. Many locksmiths have seen their businesses experience a significant decline due to the effects of the pandemic, so this year we will be awarding six scholarships for up to 3 days of classes each (excluding any lab fees), instead of the usual two scholarships of up to 2 days of classes each. We encourage all interested locksmiths to apply for the Scholarship using the appropriate application (GPLA member or non-member applications) linked below.
