Housing

Group reservations will open in February. Please do not book your reservation at one of of the group hotel's until the official online resevation site is open next month.

We are excited to announce that the 2019 Annual Meeting will be held at the Sheraton New York Times Square and the New York Hilton Midtown.

Booking a room within the ASA room block is an important way to support the association and ultimately keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. Staying “in the block” is also more convenient and helps keep you connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotels during the convention. ASA does not work with any third parties or housing bureaus for convention housing so please beware of anyone contacting you and claiming to represent ASA.
