Why Book Your Hotel Room in the NAFA Hotel Block?

  • Lower Rates! Based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying in official conference hotels, NAFA can negotiate with the hotels to provide discounted rates from their normal charges.
  • Closest hotels to the convention center.
  • Earn hotel loyalty rewards points when booking in the official hotel block.
  • Immediate email acknowledgement of your hotel assignment.
  • Reliable customer service available to assist with your reservation needs.
  • Protection in the event the hotel has oversold guest rooms.
  • Network easily with other conference attendees staying in the official hotel block.

Support NAFA by Staying at the Official Conference Hotels!

  • Unfilled rooms cost the association thousands of dollars which then can increase future conference registration fees to offset these costs.
  • The number of booked rooms attributed to NAFA is shared when contracting future venues. The more rooms booked in the official hotel block, the better leverage for lower room rates in the future.

Meet San Antonio!


Few destinations provide a sense of place like San Antonio – vibrant mix of culture, cuisine, art and history. Here, the bell towers of Spanish colonial missions have greeted mornings for almost 300 years. Mexican, European and Western cultures blend into a unique personality.

Much of the city’s unforgettable landscape has grown along the banks of the River Walk where stone paths run aside the San Antonio River connecting hotels, restaurants, shops and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in the downtown core. The 15-mile River Walk also links Spanish Colonial Missions (a World Heritage Site, along with the Alamo), museums, public art and the Pearl, a former brewery reborn into an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment.

The seventh largest and one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., San Antonio remains a city of bold flavors, exciting attractions and distinctive culture. You are invited to take in authentic historic locations, savor unique culinary fusions, experience thrills at fantastic attractions, and everything in-between. Learn More.

It’s a Fiesta!

Fiesta® San Antonio started in 1891 as a one-parade event to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. That historic commemoration still takes place, but for more than a century, Fiesta® has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures and today is one of this nation’s premier festivals. NAFA 2024 I&E is taking place during Fiesta San Antonio. Hotels will sell out—book your hotel today!
