NOTE: Be wary of travel agency scams: If anyone claiming to be associated with a travel agency and/or “convention housing” contacts you with an offer for booking a hotel room, do NOT provide them with your contact or payment information. This is a scam. NACD does not contract with such firms.
In some cases, these companies falsely claim to be the official housing bureau or room representative for ChemEdge or the Pre-Con Workshops. We have NOT contracted with any company to serve as our representative. Hotel rooms can only be reserved directly with the hotel, through the phone numbers and website links listed above.
