To take full advantage of the convention, delegates who live outside the Chicago metro area are encouraged to stay at the sanctioned and officially designated JEA/NSPA convention hotel, the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
Please realize that although an Oct. 11, 2018, deadline for reservations has been set, neither the hotel nor JEA/NSPA can guarantee availability.
Please do not book more rooms than you know you will need. Even if you cancel early, the hotels are not obligated to return rooms to the convention block. This may mean other delegates would have to pay more for their rooms in a convention hotel or that we would not “meet the block” which could affect the cost of this and future conventions. Convention officials suggest you make hotel reservations well in advance of the Oct. 11 deadline. After this date, the hotel may release rooms being held for the convention room block to the general public.
As always, there is a limited number of rooms in each configuration. If the hotel is fully booked when your reservation arrives, you will be contacted concerning alternative hotels. JEA/NSPA cannot guarantee availability of overflow housing.
You must register your group for the convention before reserving hotel rooms. The reservation link will be in your registration confirmation email. You cannot book rooms over the phone.
