Important Announcement Regarding Hotel Accommodations for the NCCN 23rd Annual Conference!

It has come to the attention of NCCN that fraudulent reservation companies are approaching our supporters, exhibitors, and conference attendees with offers of hotel rooms at discounted rates. These companies are in no way affiliated with NCCN or the Rosen Shingle Creek nor are they often legitimate companies. Please do not share your personal or financial information with these companies, or proceed with booking any reservations for the NCCN Annual Conference through these companies.

NCCN is the only organization that can reserve your room at the Rosen Shingle Creek for our conference within our discounted room block. Booking through NCCN ensures a legitimate reservation and that your credit card and personal information is secure. If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for the NCCN Annual Conference, or if they represent themselves as the "NCCN housing provider," please get their information and contact the NCCN Conferences and Meetings Department immediately at

NCCN cannot be held responsible for guests choosing accommodations outside of our official room block. If you have been contacted by email, fax, or phone by someone other than an NCCN Staff member about making your hotel reservation, please let us know immediately. Thank you!
