Help Us to Help You!

For the best possible experience, ISACA strongly encourages conference delegates to stay at the host hotel. It is the most convenient location for attendees to be able to participate in all conference activities at a negotiated price. In addition, every reservation made for those attending CSX 2018 North America helps ISACA fulfill its commitment to the hotel, in turn allowing ISACA to continue to keep the cost of both conference fees and membership dues as low as possible.

Please note: ISACA will never contact you with guest room promotions offering a better deal. With the advent of discount aggregators or housing “pirates,” if you experience a problem with a “pirate” reservation, ISACA cannot assist you. However, please know that ISACA staff will work with you to resolve issues that may arise if you make your reservation through the ISACA-provided housing registration link.
