ASGCT is now offering two room block options in 2020. Special Annual Meeting rates will be available at the Sheraton Boston Hotel ($295/night during the ASGCT 23rd Annual Meeting) and the Boston Marriott Copley Place ($349/night during the ASGCT 23rd Annual Meeting). Both blocks will open for reservations when Annual Meeting registration opens on December 2. ASGCT room blocks historically sell out months before the Annual Meeting, so we encourage attendees to make reservations as soon as possible. After the ASGCT block is completely full, there's no guarantee attendees will be able to get the same room rate during the meeting.
ASGCT negotiates directly with on-site and nearby hotels to offer the best possible hotel rates in an effort to keep attendee expenses as low as possible. In fact, the Society receives a credit for each room night used when you book within the hotel block. This credit offsets the overall cost of the meeting and keeps ASGCT registration cost down. By reserving a room at one of the official ASGCT hotel room blocks, you are helping to support not only ASGCT in 2020, but also future Annual Meetings.
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. No other housing company, agency or person is authorized to place hotel reservations on behalf of ASGCT, meeting attendees, exhibitors, or sponsors.
If you have questions about Annual Meeting housing, please contact ASGCT.
Attendees and abstract authors can generate invitation letters online so they can apply for their VISA immediately after registering or submitting an abstract. If you have any problems generating your letter, please contact ASGCT Program Manager Alex Peterson.
Some citizens of countries eligible to travel to the United States without a visa still require a visa. An ESTA eligibility checker is the best way to determine whether you will require a visa.
