Did You Know?
The success of the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo depends on attendees and exhibitors using NAFSA’s contracted hotels to offset the sizable cost of producing this event. In general, hotels require groups like NAFSA to fill a minimum number of hotel rooms so that we do not incur additional costs. By booking your hotel accommodation through NAFSA, you are helping us deliver the largest and most important annual international education event of the year. Please support NAFSA by selecting one of our vetted, affordable hotel options.

ATTENTION: Orchid Events is the official housing provider for the NAFSA 2020 Annual Conference & Expo. Solicitation of hotel reservations from any other company is not authorized by NAFSA and may have inaccurate room inventory and/or rates, unreasonable cancellation or change penalties or completely non-refundable. Please report any unauthorized solicitation housing to the NAFSA Conference team.
