Prohibited Session Room Behavior

In crowded sessions, please honor the instructions provided by ASH staff. You may be told not to stand against the walls in these rooms or not to block the aisles. Please note that if a room reaches full capacity, you may be denied entry, as ASH must obey the guidelines established by the Fire Marshall in Atlanta.back to top

Participation of Financial Professionals

The ASH annual meeting is a public forum; therefore, financial professionals and other individuals whose principal reason for attending the annual meeting is to seek business opportunities or obtain information affecting investment positions are welcome to register. However, the educational and scientific aspects of the annual meeting are always top priority. It is important that financial professionals identify themselves when speaking with presenters, particularly when asking questions for which the answers may have implications for corporate valuation or positions in equity markets. Speakers and moderators are also asked to give preference to questioners with scientific or clinical inquiries.back to top

Children Under 12

For safety reasons, children under the age of 12 (including infants in carriers and strollers or hand-carried infants and toddlers) are not permitted in the Exhibit Hall and poster sessions. Additionally, ASH prohibits children and infants in the sessions, as they may distract the speakers and disrupt other attendees. ASH has made arrangements with KiddieCorp to provide child-care services at the meeting. back to top
