PLEASE NOTE: Official PEI and NACS hotels will not honor direct reservations. You must book through the Show's official housing company, Connections Housing, to enjoy these special rates and features. To secure your hotel reservations today, simply view the instructions below or call 866-983-6227. If you have any questions, Connections Housing is available to assist you.

Why Book With Connections Housing?

  • Rate Assurance: Show Management has gone to great lengths to ensure that your rates are the lowest over the PEI Convention at the NACS Show dates and are only available to attendees and exhibitors that book through the Connections Housing.
  • Waitlist: If you don’t see your preferred hotel available online, simply call or email Connections Housing and we will put you on the waitlist for that hotel. If that hotel becomes available, we will revise your reservation and send you an updated acknowledgment email.
  • Free Shuttles: You'll receive complimentary shuttle service to the Show from all hotels that are not within walking distance to the McCormick Place Convention Center.
  • Networking Opportunities: Stay at hotels with fellow PEI attendees and exhibitors.
  • No Prepaying of Guest Rooms: Connections Housing will not charge an advance deposit for any reservation.
  • Special Deals: Benefit from hotel incentives offered exclusively to PEI and NACS participants.
  • Save Time: Let Connections Housing do the work of finding the perfect hotel for you.
  • Rest Easy: Know that we are ready to assist and protect you regarding any hotel issues that may occur before, during or after your stay.
  • Book With Confidence: Unlike some alternatives, as the NACS Official Housing Company, rooms are inspected by NACS and special rates are contracted; we deliver as promised!
  • No Contract is required for exhibitor or group bookings.


BUYER BEWARE: Please be vigilant if dealing with any companies or services other than Connections Housing that imply or claim an affiliation with the PEI Convention at the NACS Show. We have been made aware of other housing companies that may be aggressively pursuing you or your company to book your guest rooms through their company at supposed significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these companies and have either: lost their significant deposits; been relocated with little or no warning; not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked; or not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed. This has caused great hardships and significant financial loss to these companies and individuals. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk. If you are contacted by another housing company attempting to sell hotel rooms, please notify Show Management at
