Hotel information and refunds: The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is closed until a projected re-opening date of June 1st. The Marriott group guest reservation links on the NCBJmeeting.org website are open and guest rooms can be reserved now for the annual conference.
Should your personal travel plans change, or the hotel’s expectations of when they can host guests changes, or if the hotel will be closed over the NCBJ dates, the Marriott will refund deposits paid for guest rooms booked through the NCBJ website in accordance with the hotel’s published cancellation and refund policies. You must cancel your own reservation as it is a personal transaction between you and the hotel.
If you are a speaker at NCBJ 2020, please check with the organization for whom you are speaking regarding reimbursement for NCBJ registration. NCBJ requires that all speakers be registered and have a NCBJ badge.
Recent events have led NCBJ to annually review the annual conference security procedures. Attendance at NCBJ conference events and functions are limited to registered attendees and their guests. Badges are issued at NCBJ Registration at the Marriott Marquis. For security reasons, only people wearing 2020 badges will be allowed entry into the secured areas of the conference. This includes educational, social, exhibit, meals, and networking areas at the Marriott Marquis.
This NCBJ policy, which has been effect for several years, will be stringently enforced during the upcoming San Diego conference. If you fail to wear your 2020 NCBJ badge, you will not be admitted to conference areas, or will be escorted out.
NCBJ, venue security and the U.S. Marshals thank you for your cooperation in wearing your 2020 NCBJ badge at all times during the conference and the associated events and helping NCBJ provide enhanced security for all participants.
