The ASHA Convention is the premier annual professional development and networking event for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists. Plan to join your peers for the 2023 ASHA Convention, November 16–18, 2023, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
The 2023 Convention will primarily be an in-person event, however, there will still be virtual offerings. (We are not considering it a true hybrid event, since that term typically applies to a robust and equal online experience.) We’re expanding our use of the popular iPosters platform to host interactive virtual poster presentations, technical sessions, and new technical demos, which may be viewed on-demand between November 9–29. A limited selection of pre-determined in-person sessions taking place at the ASHA Convention in Boston will also be live broadcast (slides and audio only) to the virtual platform. These sessions will be available for anyone to view; however, you can only claim continuing education credit for them if you are registered. We are offering a reduced virtual-only registration rate so you can take advantage of this learning opportunity.
