Important onsite information to help in-person attendees prepare for the ASHA Convention.

We’re excited to see you in Boston! We'll be updating this page with more about onsite registration procedures, planning resources, policy updates, and other important know-before-you-go info in the weeks before the 2023 ASHA Convention, so be sure to check back.

Getting There

Most activities will take place in these primary locations:

By Plane

The Boston area is served by Logan International Airport (BOS). ASHA does not provide airport ground transportation. Taxis, ride app services such as Lyft and Uber, and airport shuttles are all readily available at the airport to transport you downtown.

By Train or Coach Bus

Amtrak trains and many regional bus carriers (i.e., Greyhound, MegaBus, etc.) service South Station in Boston.

Public Transportation

The MBTA operates the subway system (the "T"), a commuter rail system, buses and ferries in the Greater Boston region. The convention center is at the World Trade Center stop on the Silver Line of the "T."


For those arriving by car, ample parking is available near the Convention Center for a daily fee (~$25+).

ASHA Shuttles

Free shuttles are provided to and from the convention center and the ASHA hotels that are not walking distance. ADA shuttle service equipped with a wheelchair lift is also available.

BCEC Attendee Guide

The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) has put together an excellent guide for attendees with tons of useful information [PDF]. It covers how to get to the convention center, getting around the convention center with floorplans, a map of the Seaport District neighborhood, where to eat, services you will find at the convention center, and more. We recommend giving it a read to help you prepare for your visit to the ASHA Convention in Boston.
