Housing information is provided solely for the use of attendees and exhibitors to search for official NCEA 2019 hotels. Use of this information for solicitation purposes of any kind, by anyone other than a registered attendee or exhibitor, is strictly prohibited.

Important Note

The Official Housing Vendor for NCEA 2019 is Connections Housing. Through their website you can book, modify or cancel your hotel reservations at any time and receive updated information about the event. The hotels within the official block offer the best rate and service to our attendees. If you choose to book outside of the block, NCEA cannot guarantee the quality of service that the official hotels can provide.

It has come to our attention that housing poachers have been contacting NCEA exhibitors and attendees and identifying themselves as being affiliated with NCEA. NCEA has NO affiliation with these organizations and in no way endorses their services. Please do your part by booking inside the block!

If you are contacted by anyone other than Connections Housing, please get as much information as you can (name of company, person calling, telephone number, etc.), and notify the NCEA Director of Events, Amy Durkin.

Below are companies that are not affiliated with NCEA and are not authorized by NCEA to offer housing for NCEA 2019. NCEA strongly encourages you to only use Connections Housing when making hotel reservations for NCEA 2019.
