Travel and Hotel Information
NSGC has been advised that unofficial vendors have been contacting NSGC Annual Conference attendees to promote its hotel booking services and to attempt to have attendees book rooms through its service. NSGC has not authorized these solicitations. These companies are not affiliated with and are not sponsored or approved by NSGC or the NSGC Annual Conference. NSGC will not be responsible for any actions or omissions of these unofficial vendors.
We realize what a nuisance these solicitations can be to our attendees, and if there is ever a question about a communication received, please check with NSGC staff to confirm the provider is a preferred supplier before taking action. We do not want you to book a room through an illegitimate resource and run the risk of being scammed.The official housing providers for the NSGC Annual Conference are the Hyatt Regency Columbus, Hilton Columbus Downtown, Crowne Plaza Columbus Downtown, Red Rood Plus, and the Sheraton Capitol Square. By using the official travel provider you can ensure that you are being booked in the housing block reserved by NSGC and take advantage of the group discounted rates.
Please direct any inquiries related to hotel reservations for the NSGC Annual Conference to Kate Schulze at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (312) 673-5630.
Please do not reserve a hotel room until you have registered for the conference. This will help to ensure availability of rooms for all registered attendees. NSGC reserves the right to contact any non-registered hotel guests booked within the NSGC room block.
