alertLook Before You Book.

Housing “Pirates” and “Poachers” are third party companies that misrepresent themselves by claiming to be the housing provider for a given convention or trade show and profit by booking registrants outside the official room block.

Don’t be misled! NMSDC does not solicit attendees for housing reservations. If you receive an unsolicited phone call or email by a third-party, avoid providing any personal and/or financial information. These companies are not affiliated or working in partnership with NMSDC, and reservations made through these companies for our annual conference and trade fair cannot be guaranteed. Please also get as much information as you can and pass it along to us.

Reservation Information
Below you’ll find a listing of NMSDC’s official hotel(s) with online reservation links. Only the listed hotels can guarantee your reservation for the NMSDC Conference and Business Opportunity Exchange. Making your reservation in the NMSDC room block helps enhance your overall annual conference and tradeshow experience and enables us to fulfill our contracts with the hotel to provide you with discounted room rates now and for future events.

NMSDC has secured special discounted rates for blocks of rooms at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center and other hotels. The special rates apply October 18 through October 26, on a space-available basis. To take advantage of these special rates, please make your reservation as soon as possible using the appropriate housing link. Once the room blocks are filled, these rates may no longer be available.

Shuttle transportation will be provided between the conference hotels and the evening events.

Making Your Reservation
It is important that you make your reservation no later than September 22. Room reservations may be made at the rates noted as long as rooms are available in the group block and reservations are made prior to September 22. After September 22, rates and room availability cannot be guaranteed.

All room reservations require an advance deposit for the first night’s room and tax. You must guarantee your reservation with a major credit card. The credit card used to make the reservation must be valid through October 2017.

Check-in time at the Detroit Marriott is 3 p.m. Check-out time is 12 p.m. Guests arriving before check-in time will be accommodated as rooms become available. Should a later departure be necessary, arrangements for the storage of luggage can be made with the bell captain.

Confirmation Acknowledgment
A confirmation (new reservation) acknowledgment will be sent to the email address provided for each guest on the reservation within 24 hours after the online reservation is made.  Prior to submitting your reservation for completion, there is an option to add any additional email addresses that need to receive this acknowledgment.

Cancellation Policy
Advance individual reservation deposits are completely refundable if cancelled more than three days prior to arrival.

Each reservation will forfeit one night’s room and tax deposit if the reservation is not cancelled at least three days prior to the scheduled arrival date.

A cancellation acknowledgment will be sent when the reservation is cancelled in its entirety.

Any room reservations held with duplicate names must be changed to the name of the attending guest prior to August 18 or they may be cancelled at the direction of NMSDC.

An early departure fee will apply if your hotel is not notified of the change to your reservation prior to your scheduled arrival.
