Book your hotel now

Take advantage of the special room rate at the host hotel for Conference attendees. The discounted rate is available until July 8 or when the block is filled, whichever comes first. Some nights are already fully booked for the NCRA block, and the remaining rooms are going fast!

Need more reasons?

  1. You can’t beat the commute. The Conference & Expo Hall is just an elevator ride and a hop, skip, and jump from your hotel room. And with the higher costs of gas and Ubers, you will save yourself money, time, and aggravation.
  2. You can enjoy a complimentary breakfast on Friday and Saturday. When you register in the hotel block, you can slip downstairs to enjoy a complimentary breakfast with colleagues before the Conference day gets started. It’s a great way to meet people in a casual atmosphere.
  3. You never know who you will run into. When you stay on site, you will see people you know — and people you’ll want to get to know — in the hallways, restaurants, and all around the Conference hotel site.
  4. You can go back to your room whenever you need something. If you catch a chill and need a sweater or jacket or want to drop off your tchotchkes, you have only to take a break for a few minutes and head up to your room.
