Meet Us in New Orleans!
All conference general sessions, workshops, and exhibit space will be convened at the Hyatt Regency | New Orleans. CECU has partnered with the hotel to provide reduced group rate pricing for annual convention attendees. Please support the CECU Convention by staying at a conference hotel. Hotel booking will be available mid-November.
Guests may book hotel reservation through the link posted on our website in Fall, 2018.
Please Note: CECU has not given any third parties permission to block, reserve, or book hotel reservations on their behalf. If you receive inquiries from a third party to book hotel reservations, this constitutes an interference with CECU’s contractual agreement with the hotel. In addition, CECU has no recourse for reservations made through a third party. These inquiries are misleading solicitations to CECU’s attendees and exhibitors, which are not authorized by CECU. These companies have no affiliation with CECU. Please do not respond to these attempts. All CECU endorsed and negotiated housing options are posted here on our website.
Getting to New Orleans
The Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY) is approximately 25-30 minutes from the Hyatt Regency and is serviced by most major airlines with multiple schedules throughout the day to cities around the country. Find the airline that is right for you: http://www.flymsy.com/.
When planning your trip to the CECU Convention, it's suggested that attendees arrive no later than noon on Sunday, June 2, 2019 to allow enough time for you to travel from the airport to the hotel and get settled prior to the start of the sessions. Please plan to arrive earlier if you are taking advantage of the pre-conference activities/meetings.
Take advantage of all that the convention has to offer by scheduling your departure flight no earlier than Wednesday morning.
