Will the 2024 Annual Meeting be held  in-person? 

Yes. The meeting will be held both in-person in Baltimore at the Baltimore Convention Center as well as virtually via livestream and on-demand. Join us in Baltimore or online, May 7-11, 2024. 

Was the 2023 Annual Meeting held in-person?

Yes. The meeting was held in-person in Los Angeles. A virtual registration option was also offered. In-person attendees had access to the virtual platform through June 23, 2023.

What's the difference between in-person and virtual attendance? 

Both the in-person and virtual Annual Meeting experiences are designed to provide the full, comprehensive educational experience our members and attendees expect from the ASGCT Annual Meeting. Virtual registration includes live streaming and on-demand access to all plenary lectures, oral abstract presentations, scientific symposia, education sessions, and select industry-sponsored sessions. In-person attendance adds access to the exhibit hall, educational and networking receptions, and the in-person poster hall as well as livestream and on-demand access.

The table below breaks down the differences:

Are meals provided with my registration?

There are no meals provided at registration. We will have coffee breaks intermittently throughout the day, there will be food available to purchase at the Baltimore Convention Center.

I've submitted an abstract, can I register for the meeting or book my hotel room before notifications go out? 

Yes, it is highly encouraged to take advantage of early bird discounts and our discounted hotel rates. The majority of abstracts submitted do get accepted for a poster presentation with more than 350 submissions accepted for oral presentations. Please refer to our cancellation policy should anything come up causing you to need to cancel your registration. Associate members who are first and presenting authors may register for their free registration prior to the notification of abstracts as well, and ASGCT staff will double check membership and acceptance when finalized. 

Do I have to be a U.S. resident to attend?

No! However, if you’re planning to attend in-person and will be arriving from a country from which a visa is required, a letter of invitation is available to help attendees secure a visa. All international attendees are required to follow relevant international travel guidelines and restrictions.

Do I have to be a member to attend?

You don’t have to be an ASGCT member to attend the meeting, but members receive benefits including registration discounts and eligibility for awards, in addition to other benefits throughout the year.
