Hotel and Accommodations

Paris Las Vegas Casino & Resort
3655 Las Vegas Blvd South
Las Vegas, NV 89109

NCBJ has reserved a block of attendee rooms at the lowest possible price (only $189/night, plus tax). The block rate is lower than any Internet-based rate that the Paris will offer during our conference dates, and rivals the lowest prices offered by other distant hotels. The $36/day resort fee is waived for our room block, and in-room Internet access is COMPLIMENTARY for NCBJ group block rooms.

To reserve your room, visit the special NCBJ link. Be sure to make your reservations early! Last year we had to turn people away from our official hotel at the Marriott in San Francisco. At these rates, the NCBJ rooms are sure to sell out early, well before the August 30th cut-off date. And since space is limited, once these rooms are booked, they are gone forever!

Leadership Dinner

More information and registration details will be available in August for this invitation only event!
