The 2016 NGS Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is less than one year away, but it is not too soon to think about hotel reservations. Attendees have a choice of three different hotels in the area with a variety of room rates. Located across the street from the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center is the conference hotel, the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. Conference attendees may also stay at either the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel or the Fort Lauderdale Embassy Suites.

The hotels will begin accepting reservations for the conference on 27 May 2015. Reservations must go through the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) to receive the NGS rate. Please note the following:

  • one night's deposit guaranteed by a major credit card will be required to hold the reservation
  • special conference rates will apply for three days before and after the conference
  • ADA compliant rooms are available
  • reservations at all three hotels will close on 1 April 2016
  • a $100 cancellation fee, in addition to the hotel cancellation fee, will apply for any reservation cancelled after 1 April 2016.
