NCA 104th Annual Convention Art

The NCA 104th Annual Convention will convene in Salt Lake City, UT. 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. There are guest room blocks at the six hotels listed below.  While you will not be charged at the time of reservation a one night deposit may be charged on or following the October 15 hotel reservation deadline.

The Hilton Salt Lake City Center is the only hotel that will also have convention programming. A majority of the sessions, the NCA Exhibit Hall, and the Registration Area will all be located at the Salt Palace Convention Center located at 90 South West Temple.

All hotel reservations must go through Orchid Events using this link or by calling Orchid Events. Reservations CANNOT be made by calling the hotel properties directly. Orchid Events agents are available 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. mountain time Monday - Friday by calling 888-665-1374. International attendees should call +1-801-505-5261.
