Conference Hotels

NBAA has secured discounted group rate room blocks for the 2020 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC2020) at a number of hotels within walking distance of the Charlotte Convention Center.

Reservation Policy: In an effort to ensure room availability, NBAA has implemented the following booking policy: All reservations made within NBAA’s contracted group rate room blocks will require a one-night advance payment that will be refundable only if a reservation is canceled before Jan. 24, 2020, by 6 p.m. (PST). Reservations made after Jan. 24 2020, will require a non-refundable, one-night advance payment.

Standard cancellation policy information or terms provided in reservation confirmation messages or by reservation agents may inaccurately reflect the deposit conditions that apply to reservations made within NBAA’s negotiated group rate room blocks as outlined above.

Important Notice: Some SDC2020 attendees and exhibitors have been contacted by third-party housing agencies to book hotel rooms for the event. NBAA does not have a housing partner for this event. Attendees are encouraged to reserve hotel rooms directly with the SDC2020 hotels using the links below.
Hotel Waitlist: NBAA has started a waitlist to accommodate attendees whose preferred hotel is currently not available. Sign up to be added to the SDC2020 hotel waitlist to be notified when a room becomes available.
