Hotel & Travel Information

The decision to locate the Homecoming event closer to the East Coast was made not only in counterpoint to the West Coast location of the 2022 NCTE Annual Convention (Anaheim, California), but because Louisville is within a day’s drive for over half of the US population. Locating Homecoming in Louisville makes it a very accessible opportunity and will allow for maximum drivability for many teachers this summer.


NCTE offers two full-service hotel options at competitive rates, with a low-rate guarantee. Booking through our provider ensures not only the best pricing but also common cancellation parameters. Both properties are a short walk from the Kentucky International Convention Center. Book your room at the discounted rate through 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 21.
