Exhibitor Registration & Housing is now open!
Hotel WaitlistIf you would like to place a Wait Comment on your record for a hotel not presently available, you may email [email protected] after you have confirmed a hotel reservation at an alternate host hotel. Should a room become available, we will automatically make the reservation change and send a new confirmation.
You must have a completed registration prior to booking hotel reservations. Reservations without a completed registration will not be allowed.
The hotel reservation cutoff is on Friday, January 7. Please make your reservations prior to that date.
HOUSTON HOTEL UPDATE
Due to higher-than-normal demand for hotel rooms, we are actively adding additional rooms at existing and new overflow host hotels and can guarantee that we will provide you with an option to book a room at one of our existing or newly added overflow host hotels.
Important Notice - Beware of unauthorized hotel solicitations
NCBA’s official housing vendor is Maritz. Attendees and exhibitors should be cautious of other companies that:
Call you directly and claim they are official housing partners and have the best rates for Houston. NCBA and Maritz will never call you directly.
Claim to be affiliated with NCBA by offering discounted hotel rates, which often can be too good to be true.
Ask you to provide your contact information and credit card details, and require full pre-payment in advance.
Claim to have availability at their advertised hotels, but may take the money for the rooms, then later cancel without refund to you.
Call you directly and claim to have new policies and discounted rates for the trade show.
When booking your hotel for the meeting, please be sure that you are booking through a credible source and email [email protected] if you are approached by a company making the above claims.

In light of the recent housing scams and concerns, we have added an extra security measure requiring you to enter a password, which is your assigned Company ID. Your company’s main booth contact person has been sent this information; should you need the password, please contact them. If you are not sure who your contact person is, feel free to e-mail [email protected] & we can send you those details.
Name badges will be available for pick-up in the Grand Concourse D of the George R. Brown Convention Center. To avoid confusion and inconvenience, everyone must pick up their own name badge. No exceptions. Access to the exhibit hall will be restricted to those registered as exhibitor personnel during move-in and move-out hours. Exhibitors utilizing the services of an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) company, refer to temporary work badges below.
Bulk Registrations: No lists will be accepted on-site for registration. If you are going to be registering a large number of staff, you can upload a list on the Exhibitor Registration & Housing website. On-site registration must be done on an individual basis.
Temporary Work Badges: No one will be allowed access to the Trade Show floor without either an Exhibitor Badge or a Temporary Work Badge. Temporary exhibit workers (installation and dismantling personnel) can obtain a Temporary Work Badge during move-in and move-out times at Registration in the Grand Concourse D of the George R. Brown Convention Center. **See Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Work Authorization Request Form in Exhibitor Kit**
