To make our international guests feel more at home, ASA also is unveiling a new International Attendee Service Center at this year’s meeting. The Service Center will have language facilitators on hand who speak Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. International attendees also are encouraged to utilize the Service Center to schedule a meeting with colleagues in one of our small meeting rooms, as space permits; relax in the lounge area; or talk with our international travel partner about plans for next year’s meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

To recognize our international attendees, ASA will provide a ribbon distinguishing our international guests, which can be picked up during the on-site registration process.
