2022 Annual Conference Banner image

Edward Leach photoHello Conference Participants!

I strongly encourage you to make your room reservation at the conference’s host hotel. The convenience! The networking! The success of NISOD’s annual conference depends on registrants using the contracted hotel to offset the sizable costs of producing the meeting and exposition. NISOD cannot meet its obligations if registrants reserve rooms in non-contracted hotels. The risk of significant financial penalties increases with each registrant who stays outside a NISOD-contracted hotel. Making reservations through third parties, meeting planners, housing bureaus, or travel websites impacts NISOD’s ability to control attendee registration costs. It also places NISOD in a weaker position to contract for future hotel room rates that best meet the needs of our members. For more information, see Why Should I Stay at a Hotel Contracted by NISOD.

Thank you for your interest in our conference and I look forward to seeing you in Austin!

A Note of Caution: As the date of this event draws closer, exhibitors and attendees may be subjected to improper solicitation from third-party housing agencies. If you are contacted by anyone asking if you “need a room for NISOD’s annual conference” or representing themselves as the “NISOD Housing Bureau,” please get as much information as you can – such as name of the company, the person calling, and their telephone number – and immediately email these details to leach@austin.utexas.edu.

Poachers typically offer room reservations at a significantly lower quality. In other circumstances, cancellation policies are often harsh and unforgiving. DO NOT make any reservations through unknown companies. Most importantly, do not provide them with your personal information, especially your credit card number. These rogue companies (commonly referred to as “pirates” or “bandits”) may charge your credit card for services not rendered. For these reasons, and to support our efforts to give you a quality event, we encourage you to book your housing accommodations using the links provided by NISOD on this website.

All conference events will take place at the JW Marriott Austin.
