NCA 106th Annual Convention Image

The NCA 106th Annual Convention will convene in Indianapolis, IN. 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 is not working with any third parties or housing bureaus for convention housing so please beware of anyone contacting you and claiming to represent NCA. There are guest room blocks at the two hotels listed below. Both hotels will have convention programming. The NCA Exhibit Hall and the Registration Area will be located at the JW Marriott Indianapolis.

Hotel reservations will open in July.
