The 7th North American Duck Symposium (NADS 7) is being held at the Westin Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.

We have a block of 200 rooms reserved at a discounted rate of $135 per night ($US), plus applicable taxes and fees (~13%) for a single room (1-4 people per room). Conference rates are in effect from January 30 thru February 7, 2016, but must be made before Jan 4, 2016 to receive the discounted rate.  **See below on Government Rates at Loews hotel nearby**

All conference participants are responsible for arranging their own accommodation directly with the Westin Annapolis Hotel by calling the Group Reservations Department at 1-888-627-8994 or online via the link below.

Be certain to mention you are a NADS 7 attendee to receive the NADS 7 accommodation rate.


Please reserve your rooms by 4 January 2016 to take advantage of reduced accommodation rates.  We recommend making your reservation as early as possible since we have a limited number of rooms available at this discounted rate.  If we fill up before January 2016, we will try to make arrangements with a nearby hotel at a similar rate, but cannot promise anything. SO BOOK YOUR ROOM NOW!



Are you attending NADS 7 and looking to cut costs by sharing a room???

We've created a Room-share sign-up sheet for NADS7 attendees staying at the Westin (or nearby hotels) who are looking to share their room while attending the symposium.  Click the link above and enter you information if you are interested. Reference the sign-up sheet when you contact potential roommates and once you have found one, can you please remove yourself from the list!



Unfortunately, the Westin does not offer Governement rates on rooms, even within our discounted room block.  However, we have reserved 25 rooms at the LOEWS Hotel which is just a 5 min walk to Westin.  Government employees can make their reservations by calling the Loews Reservations Center, 800-526-2593 ( Address: 126 West St, Annapolis, MD 2140). For guests who prefer to book online, please visit our website at, select your arrival and departure dates, click box for “Special Rates” then select “Group Rates” from the dropdown, and enter your group code, NOR201, in the code field. 


**A word of caution - Some credit card numbers were compromised at NADS6 through what we believe was a taxi service. The NADS6 organizers would like to remind everyone to use caution when giving out your credit card numbers.
