NOTE: Hotel Deposit Error
It has come to NABJ’s attention that the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, our main 2017 convention hotel, mistakenly charged some of our attendees a one-night room deposit in advance of their arrival at the convention. Once the error was discovered, the hotel stopped charging NABJ guests the deposit and is processing a refund for those who were charged. Please contact Hilton Senior Events Manager Angelle Weidenbacher atif you were affected and have not seen a credit by July 14.
