Scenes from Nieman's 75th reunion

Reserve your spot

Register now and let us know if you plan to bring a guest. We’ve reduced the registration fee for fellows — $250 per person — from our last reunion in 2013.

Nieman has a limited fund to support fellows who might need assistance covering the registration cost. For more information, please contact us at tickethelp@nieman80.org. If you’d like to help defray the cost of a reunion ticket for an alum, you can also contact us at this address.

Reserve your hotel room

A preferential group rate for rooms is available at The Charles Hotel in Harvard Square.

When booking, please refer to the group rate by name: Nieman Foundation’s 80th Anniversary. Call 617.864.1200 or 800.882.1818.

Room cost: $329.00

Reservations must be made by calling the hotel directly not later than Sept. 14, 2018, to receive the group rate. After this date, or once the block of rooms is full, the hotel may still be able to take reservations, but cannot guarantee the group rate.

Other hotel and B&B options in the area

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the reunion, catching up with your news and hearing all of your creative ideas. Due to space limitations and the nature of programming, all events are for adults only. If you are traveling with children and need child care, Boston’s Best BabySitters can provide assistance at your hotel.
