    Beware of False and Fraudulent Housing Claims

    NCTM has designated MCI USA (formerly Wyndham Jade) as the only housing provider for the 2018 Regional Conference & Exposition in Kansas City. 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 MCI USA or NCTM, please let us know by calling 972-349-7476 or emailing us at nctm@mcievents.com.
