Important Housing Information
Convention Management Resources (CMR) is the only official housing provider. CMR and NATA are two separate entities. Hotel cancellation policies will differ and hotels won’t be notified of your registration cancellation. Contact the housing company directly for any questions regarding your hotel reservations. NATA will not be held liable for any fees associated with failing to cancel hotel reservations.
If for any reason NATA cancels or substantially shortens NATA 2024, or a portion thereof, the registrant agrees its sole remedy is the return of all or a portion (as applicable) of the registration fees already paid. NATA will endeavor to inform registrants of substantial changes in programming that may affect travel plans in a reasonable amount of time after any such changes are made final. Notwithstanding the preceding, registrants will be responsible for cancellation of travel arrangements, housing, visa and any other arrangements and NATA shall not be liable to pay any applicable cancellation or other fees or damages incurred as a result.
Registration fees for NATA 2024 are due upon registration or at badge pickup. If payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, NATA won’t provide an attendee badge and shall have no liability in that regard.
It’s solely the attendee’s responsibility to comply with any government visa requirements and failure to do so doesn’t constitute a basis for a refund.
By attending NATA 2024, you agree to obtain all appropriate licenses and rights to use copyrighted materials and other intellectual property owned or controlled by third parties prior to using such materials and property during the convention, including, but not limited to, while on the premises of the venue(s) hosting the convention.

AUDIO, VIDEO AND DIGITAL RECORDING POLICY
Except for services ordered through the official photographer, exhibitors must have prior written approval from the organizer for any photographing, videotaping or audio-taping activity in the exhibit hall.
