Conference Finance

The NCEMSF Conference remains one of the most affordable EMS conferences in the United States. Finalized pricing and hotel rates will be available soon, but they will be comparable with past years. 

For groups who have never attended an NCEMSF Conference, groups that were regular attendees in the past but have not attended in the last several years, or groups experiencing financial hardship, NCEMSF offers a Conference Scholarship Program/New Group Initiative. The application for this program will be available soon, but in the interim, please contact your group's Regional Coordinator to learn more.

Conference registrations can be paid individually or as a group, and NCEMSF accepts credit card/purchasing card payment via PayPal, as well as checks (personal or institutional) and institutional purchase orders. It's never too early to ensure that your school's purchasing or finance office is ready to pay NCEMSF. You can find financial documents commonly needed to set up a vendor in schools' purchasing systems at our Tax Forms Page. If additional information is needed, please contact confinfo@ncemsf.org

Conference Logistics

The 2022 NCEMSF Conference will be held at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel. Located in Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle, it overlooks the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers and is situated near several parks, the Fort Pitt Museum, and Pittsburgh's Cultural District. The hotel's address is 600 Commonwealth Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. 

For those travelling from out-of-town, Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) is located 30 minutes west of downtown Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is also on the Pennsylvanian and Capitol Limited Amtrak routes, and Union Station (PGH) is less than one mile from the Wyndham Grand Downtown. For those driving to the hotel, both on-site and off-site parking options will be available. 

Hotel rates, parking rates, and other details will be available soon. 


NCEMSF offers multiple avenues for companies, organizations, and educational institutions to support the NCEMSF Conference and the Foundation's work as a whole.

On Saturday, February 26, 2022, a vendor and career fair will be held in a prominent area of the hotel. Booths are available to companies marketing products to EMTs and EMS agencies, as well as to medical schools and others looking to recruit. Most of our attendees are current undergraduate students who also serve as EMTs and Paramedics on their college campuses. Many of them hold leadership positions with the groups they represent and are responsible for agency purchases. After graduation, many attendees either continue in EMS, go on to medical school, or complete post-graduate education. 

We also offer the ability for sponsorship of specific Conference activities, assisting with one of our ongoing programs, or a named lecture track.
