WARNING: Possible Housing Scam. Unfortunately, it has been brought to our attention that there are companies calling our exhibitors and sponsors to make fraudulent hotel bookings. NCTE is working through the proper channels to stop these scammers, and we express our sincerest apologies to those who have been contacted by one of these entities. If you are contacted by a representative of any housing company offering discounts on rooms at any of the official NCTE hotels, please do not do business with them.  NCTE does not provide or sell a list of attendee, sponsor, or exhibitor information to housing agencies and official NCTE representatives will never solicit you regarding hotel or travel arrangements.

Stroll the Minneapolis Skyway!
