NATOA has reserved a block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach Hotel at the October 2023 per diem rate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: While we were fortunate to receive per diem hotel room rates, the October 2023 per diem will not be announced until August 2023. As such, rates listed are 2022 per diem and we strongly suggest you add $10/room night when seeking travel approval. Per diem through September 2023 is $182 single/double plus tax.

To reserve a room at the discounted NATOA rate, BOOK HERE or call (562) 491-1234 and ask for the NATOA Annual Conference group rate. The discounted NATOA rate is available until September 8, 2023 or until the block is full. NATOA's room block has filled to capacity in the past and we cannot guarantee that additional rooms can be added to the block. We encourage you to make your reservations early to ensure you receive the discounted rate. 

The discounted rate is available 3 days before/after the conference, based on hotel availability.

* The NATOA Conference room rate includes complimentary high speed internet access in the sleeping rooms.
