Host Hotel Sells Out

The ASGCT housing block at the Washington Hilton for the 2019 Annual Meeting is officially sold out. Contact the hotel directly at (202) 483-3000 for last-minute availability outside of the ASGCT block.

No housing company, agency or person is authorized to place hotel reservations on behalf of ASGCT, meeting attendees, exhibitors, or sponsors. Anyone claiming to do so has not entered into agreements with the Washington Hilton or ASGCT and are not able to guarantee rates and accommodations during the conference dates.

Abstract Submission Now Closed

The abstract submission period for 22nd ASGCT Annual Meeting is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted their research for consideration. Notifications for accepted abstracts will be sent by March 20.

Technical support from CTI Meetings Technology is available from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, and can be reached by emailing or calling 217-398-1792.

Registration is Now Open

Registration for the 22nd Annual Meeting is now open! Early registration rates are available through April 8, 2019, and groups of five or more are eligible for an additional 15 percent discount. Non-members are invited to apply for membership when they register to earn the member discount on their registration. As always, Associate Members who are first and presenting authors on an abstract at the Annual Meeting receive free registration.

Book Your Room in the ASGCT Housing Block

ASGCT's Annual Meeting housing block at the Washington Hilton is open for bookings. Make your reservations as soon as possible, because the housing block will sell out well before the Annual Meeting. After the ASGCT block is completely full, there's no guarantee attendees will be able to get the same room rate during the meeting.

Reserve a Room or learn more about ASGCT Travel and Housing

In past years, a "housing company" representing itself as ASGCT's hotel booking agent has contacted exhibitors and attendees to make hotel reservations on their behalf. The Washington Hilton is the only official housing provider for the 22nd Annual Meeting. No other housing company, agency or person is authorized to place hotel reservations on behalf of ASGCT, meeting attendees, exhibitors, or sponsors.
