Hotel and Travel Information

   Hotel 

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.

Guests may cancel their reservation up to 72 hours prior to arrival date for a full refund. *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.          

There is a limited block of discounted rooms for students available online only - no call-in please. Reserve a Student Room Online. The NCA student room rate for a single or double room is $140, plus applicable taxes of 12%. $30 will be charged for each additional adult guest staying in the same room. Limit: four adult guests per room. Please note that there are limited accessible rooms in the student block due to the fact that the student block is located in the Masquerade Tower which has few accessible rooms located within. If you are a student in need of an accessible room, please make a reservation for the $140 rate room and email your confirmation number to convention@natcom.org to ensure an accessible room in the Masquerade if one is available. A credit card will be required to make a reservation and a one-night deposit WILL BE charged at the time of reservation. Guests may cancel their reservation up to 72 hours prior to arrival date for a full refund. *Please note that while the hotel bills itself as an "all suite" hotel, the rooms are not the standard expectation of a suite.
