Annual Leadership Conference events will be held at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, unless otherwise indicated on the agenda. The hotel is located at 2900 Bayport Drive, Tampa, Florida, 33607.

A special discounted rate of $175 per night plus taxes and fees is available to corporate partners, non-members, and invited guests registered for the Annual Leadership Conference.

  • Please make your hotel reservations directly with the hotel, using this link.
  • State Chief Administrators/Proxy and individuals using your state's Plus Membership Benefit, please do not make a reservation. See the information below instead.

The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay is conveniently located just three miles from Tampa International Airport (TPA). With easy access to major highways, the hotel is a short drive to everything Tampa has to offer.

The cut-off date to reserve hotel room accommodations in our discounted block is April 14, 2023, or until the block is sold out. We encourage you to reserve early to avoid a sell-out situation. 

State Chief Administrators/Proxy and Individuals using Plus Membership Benefit:

NASCA will reserve your hotel room based on the dates requested in your registration. Up to 3 hotel nights are included in your state member dues and will be paid by NASCA. You will receive a hotel confirmation email approximately 10 days prior to the event. Please plan to present a credit card upon arrival to cover your incidental expenses.

If you are interested in extending your stay, additional nights may be available and must be paid on your own. The discounted rate of $175 plus taxes and fees is available for up to three days pre- and post event, subject to availability.

State attendees who cancel their reservations less than 72 hours prior to the event will be responsible for providing NASCA with payment for confirmed hotel nights. Please notify [email protected] in writing as soon as possible if you would like to change or cancel your reservation. Additional nights cannot be guaranteed after the cutoff date or if the room block is sold out. 

**Alert** There are scammers out there – and on occasion, they have contacted attendees claiming to be with NASCA Conference Housing. They are not. Please disregard.
