ASH is excited to offer in-person and virtual attendance options for the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition! For the first time, ASH will be providing a hybrid experience that will allow attendees to choose to register to come to Atlanta, Georgia, or experience sessions at home or on the go. We are dedicated to providing a world-class meeting experience, regardless of which option is chosen.
For those who opt for an in-person meeting experience, safety will continue to be a top priority for ASH. Additional information about on-site safety protocols will be posted as it becomes available. We encourage you to monitor this page to stay abreast of the latest updates.
Similar to last year, ASH is pleased to offer three virtual meeting registration options to accommodate your schedule. The multiple registration options are designed to give attendees maximum flexibility with varying length of access to the virtual meeting platform to suit their individual needs. Each registration option will provide attendees with access to the virtual meeting platform during the live, core dates of the meeting (December 11-14, 2021) to participate in live sessions, live Q&A, networking, CME/MOC, exhibit halls, and more. In addition, registrants will enjoy on-demand access to all sessions for the duration of their registration package.
Rock out with your peers at the Tabernacle. Get ready for ASH Talks, Blood Drops on various subjects, Blood Buddies hosted by Hematology leaders, and more!
