Hotel and Travel Information

    Hotels   

The NCA 100th Annual Convention will convene at the Hilton Chicago and the Palmer House Hilton. The hotels are located within four blocks of each other. Registration and the NCA Exhibit Hall will be located in the Hilton Chicago. Convention sessions will be held at both hotels

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.
