    • Get the best networking opportunities and meet leaders in education.
    • Complimentary shuttle service to/from the official hotels that are not within walking distance of the convention center from April 5-8.
    • Stay where the action is at our headquarters hotel–Grand Hyatt San Antonio–or the many NCTM hotels near the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
    • Book with confidence knowing that all hotels have been inspected and approved by NCTM, and our official housing provider, Wyndham Jade, will assist you with any hotel challenges from booking to on-site.

    Don't forget to take advantage of these low rates to include your stay for the NCTM Research Conference, April 3-5.

    Beware of False and Fraudulent Housing Claims

    NCTM has designated Wyndham Jade as the only housing provider for the 2017 Annual Meeting & Exposition. There are fraudulent companies and organizations that will try to present themselves as official partners of NCTM and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed or available. Should you be contacted by someone other than Wyndham Jade or NCTM, please let us know by calling 972-349-7476 or emailing us at nctm@wyndhamjade.com.

    Certain designated hotels will offer complimentary shuttle service from April 5-8 to Henry B.
