WHY BOOK IN THE NCOLCTL/ALTA BLOCK?
Room rates offered for the NCOLCTL/ALTA Convention are very competitive. We encourage you to utilize NCOLCTL/ALTA’s room block.
- Booking rooms outside the block can hurt NCOLCTL/ALTA financially. NCOLCTL/ALTA's sets aside room blocks in hotels to guarantee that attendees will have a room available during the Convention. Room blocks also guarantee to the host city that several thousand of their hotel rooms will be booked. If NCOLCTL/ALTA doesn’t fill its room block commitment, there are severe financial penalties.
- Reduced room reservations give NCOLCTL/ALTAless bargaining power for future years and also increase the cost for the rental of the convention center and meeting space at the headquarter hotel. These penalties ultimately could be passed on to attendees through increased registration fees as well as room rates.
- Some of the online discount sites are not as accommodating, charging additional fees or charging for days you will no longer be staying at the hotel. As long as you cancel within 72 hours prior to arrival, you will not be charged one night’s room and tax by your confirmed hotel.
- Avoid the scammers. If you book online through NCOLCTL/ALTA, you will avoid being scammed by a company promising things they cannot deliver.
