How do I make a second or third payment for my conference fee?
Your second and third EZ Pay payments will happen automatically.
Which airport do I take?
Most attendees fly into Tampa International (TPA). St.Pete/Clearwater Regional (PIE) is a smaller regional airport, but sometimes has flights that are more convenient, depending on where you live.
Which airport is closer to the hotel?
The Tampa and St. Pete/Clearwater airports are an equal distance from the hotel when you take traffic into consideration. (Tampa is technically farther away, but the route to the hotel is nearly all highway, whereas St. Pete/Clearwater is closer, but requires a more complicated route to the hotel.) In other words, it's six of one, half-dozen of the other. You should pick your airport based on the airline. Tampa is a large, international airport that services most large cities and hubs. St. Pete/Clearwater is a small regional airport.
How do I get from the airport to the hotel?
You can book a reservation with SuperShuttle, use Uber/Lyft, or take a taxi. You can also contact the hotel for more options.

What goes on at a NINC conference?
Workshops are scheduled up to three per hour, so there’s always a topic of interest for everyone in attendance. Open to NINC members, registered Industry Guests and Author Assistants*.
The conference committee informs all workshop and panel speakers that all member attendees are experienced, career-oriented authors who seek to either maintain their success to take their careers to the next level.
In 2019, we also have an industry trade show taking place during the conference.
*There are also a presentations designed for Author Assistants working at every level from beginner to advanced.
Night Owl sessions are one of the staples of a NINC conference. These informally structured, round-table type discussions are Members Only and here's why: we talk about things we might not even tell our spouses, mothers or best friends…because nobody else understands writers as well as other writers.
We do not currently allow members of the media access to our conference in order to maintain a friendly, casual atmosphere for our members. Questions can be addressed to our Central Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
