On October 16, our registration provider will begin mailing badges to everyone who registered by October 13 for the full 3-day event and opted to have their badge mailed in advance. (One-day and international registrants must pick up their badges onsite.)
If your badge does not arrive before you leave for Boston, do not worry! Simply come to the Registration area at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Exhibit Hall A, and we’ll help you get a new one printed. If you have questions about registration or badges, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help.
Our 2023 ASHA Convention theme, “Igniting Innovation,” is about finding the “I” in innovation. What type of innovator are you? Take our innovator assessment quiz to learn the color of your “spark." You will be able to pick up some flair for your badge to display your innovation archetype at the Convention.
All authors listed on propsals submitted to the 2023 ASHA Convention Call for Papers were notified of acceptance/non-acceptance by email on July 13. Please e-mail email@example.com if you have any questions.
Here are some things to look forward to in Boston:
The 2023 Convention will primarily be an in-person event, however, we are still offering some content online. (We are not considering this year's Convention a true hybrid event, since that term typically applies to a robust and equal online experience.)
We’re expanding our use of the iPosters virtual platform for our "Virtual Extra" online content. Between November 9–29, you may view on-demand interactive poster presentations, technical clinical and technical research sessions, and new technical demos on the iPosters platform. A limited selection of pre-determined in-person sessions taking place at the ASHA Convention in Boston will also be broadcasted live (slides and audio only) to the virtual platform.
The Virtual Extra sessions will be publicly available for anyone to view; however, you can only claim continuing education credit for them if you are a full ASHA Convention registrant or virtual-only registrant. (One-day registration does not allow you to claim continuing education credit for Virtual Extra sessions.) If you can't join us in Boston for the ASHA Convention, the good news is that we are offering a lower virtual-only registration rate this year!
We’re really fired up about our 2023 ASHA Convention theme, “Igniting Innovation,” which is about finding the “I” in innovation. We’re celebrating how each of us is creative in a unique way and how that translates to innovation. Innovation can be anything from incremental to systemic and from low-risk to high-risk, so we can all contribute to a culture of innovation! We’ll be exploring the different types of innovation to help you find your inspiration—the color of your spark. Everyone is an innovator whose spark can ignite change for the better.
Boston, a hub for the technology and medical industries, and home to numerous universities, is known for innovation. It’s the perfect host city for the 2023 ASHA Convention!
The Convention Co-Chair for Audiology, Jennifer Simpson, and the Convention Co-Chair for Speech-Language Pathology, Kelly Farquharson, welcome you to the 2023 ASHA Convention. In partnership with the Convention Program Committee, they are working to offer a wide array of sessions to meet the continuing education needs of communication sciences and disorders professionals.
