    The most important things to consider leading up to the annual meeting are to register and reserve your room. Room blocks at conference hotels sell out quickly, so be sure to book early. Next, consider what sessions and activities you want to attend and plan your schedule.

    Also, be sure to follow ASH on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates. Use the hashtag #ASH20 when searching for or discussing the annual meeting on social media.

    At the Meeting
    Once you are at the meeting, finalize your schedule with any last-minute changes or additions. You may also want to purchase tickets to one of the special Ticketed Sessions. Also, plan time to visit other activities such as the exhibit hall or a poster theater session.

    Be sure to take advantage of the many opportunities ASH offers to network with colleagues. Don't forget to make time for a bit of fun as well, like participating in the ASH Foundation Run/Walk.

    After the Meeting
    If you missed or would like to revisit a session from the meeting, you can access video recordings. Also, remember to claim CME/MOC credit or request a certificate of attendance.
