Conference Facilities

NIH Events Management provides comprehensive conference/meeting support services for NIH conference facilities on the Bethesda campus and surrounding locale.

The use of the NIH centrally managed conference facilities is pre-paid by the NIH OD and IC through an annual assessment based on three-year historical use. Non-NIH Federal Government users will be charged the published room rates via an Inter Agency Agreement.
Details for cancellation and supplemental services charges can be found in the Policies section.

Hours of Operation

All conference facilities are open Monday to Friday from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM except for the Natcher Conference Center, which is open until 6:00 PM.

To make reservations for NIH on and off-campus conference space, you may call the NIH Events Reservation Line at 301-435-2208 or submit an On-line Meeting / Event Request.
