Hotel and Travel Information


The NCA 101st Annual Convention will convene at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Booking a room within the NCA room block is an important way to support the association and ultimately keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. Staying “in the block” is also more convenient and helps keep you connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotels during the convention. NCA does not work with any third parties or housing bureaus for convention housing so please beware of anyone contacting you and claiming to represent NCA.

*Please note that while the hotel bills itself as an "all suite" hotel, the rooms are not the standard expectation of a suite. The guest rooms at the Rio do consist of only one room (and bathroom). The sleeping and living areas are not separate, rather the rooms are oversized rooms. The Rio Hotel offers a resort fee option of $25 per night. The resort fee includes in-room wifi for (2) devices, health club access for (2) people, and all local calls. You may add the resort fee to your reservation upon check-in. It is optional.  

The Rio Hotel & Casino offers a free shuttle to the "Strip" guests. The shuttle runs 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m. with routes to/from either Bally's, Paris or Harrah's Las Vegas. Pick-up times are approximately every 30 minutes from each location. Shuttle buses are wheelchair and scooter accessible.
