Making Hotel Reservations

Hotel reservations are conducted through our partner, Maritz Global Events. Maritz is the ONLY booking agent for the NAIS People of Color Conference and Student Diversity Leadership Conference. If you make hotel reservations through other means, you will not receive the discounted conference rates for your stay. NAIS will never reach out to attendees and exhibitors directly to book hotel rooms. We work exclusively with Maritz Global Events to handle our conference and housing registrations. If you receive calls from any third-party vendor, we strongly advise that you do not give these solicitors any personal information. Find more information below.

The NAIS PoCC hotel block, administered by our registration partner Maritz Global Events, has limited availability at this time. For attendees who haven't made a hotel reservation yet, you can log into the PoCC registration platform to check availability. If you do not see availability for your travel dates, you will be able to access a link to assist with finding hotels that have availability in the area through our accommodations partner aRes Travel. Log into the PoCC registration platform here.

All hotels are within walking distance to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. View a map here.

ALERT: Housing and List Buying Scam

Large conferences and events often become targets for companies seeking to take advantage of the attendees. Some of our members have reported that they’ve been contacted by third party companies for several reasons including offering to sell our attendee list to them.

NAIS does not sell the attendee list for our conferences to any third-party companies or list brokers. These solicitations are simply an attempt to confirm your email address and get your credit card information. We are working with our legal representation to combat this issue.

In addition, there are several third-party companies who have contacted members and exhibitors to book hotel accommodations through their companies. 

These third-party “pirate” companies create websites and email solicitations offering special discounted hotel rooms for other associations’ meetings. They use web domain names and email addresses that look like the official versions for the conference. Often, these discounted rooms do not exist. The primary objective of this solicitation is to obtain your credit card information.

Maritz Global Events is our exclusive housing provider. NAIS has no affiliation with any other company and cannot guarantee rates or accommodations made through these companies. All correspondence received from Maritz Global Events regarding housing for the NAIS People of Color Conference and Student Diversity Leadership Conference will come from [email protected].

If you have any doubt about the information that you are receiving regarding the NAIS People of Color Conference or Student Diversity Leadership Conference, please email or call us: (202) 973-9700 or [email protected].
