We are sorry to announce that the 2020 ASHA Convention, scheduled for November 19-21 in San Diego, California, has been cancelled. This decision was made in partnership with our host destination, San Diego. Please read our full statement.
Both Convention attendees and the association benefit when you book a hotel room through ASHA. Here's how:
If you find a lower rate at a hotel in our block than what we offer, please contact ASHA's official housing provider, Spargo, Inc. (877-585-6005; firstname.lastname@example.org). Customer service hours are 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. (Eastern Time), Monday–Friday.
Sometimes, ASHA is alerted that an unauthorized housing company is contacting our exhibitors or attendees to inform them that they can offer less expensive room rates at hotels in our block. Spargo, Inc. is the only official housing company for ASHA. If you receive a call or e-mail from any company that is not our official housing provider, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.
All official ASHA Convention hotels comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. If you need an accessible hotel room, please complete the reservation process online and select "Handicap Accessible" at the step where you may indicate room preferences. A representative from ASHA's housing company will contact you to discuss your room arrangements. Members are also welcome to contact Customer Service ( firstname.lastname@example.org; 877-585-6005 or 703-449-6418) if they wish to discuss their needs with someone directly. Read about accessibility at ASHA's live events for more information about reasonable requests for accommodations.
The ASHA Convention will be held at the San Diego Convention Center, 111 West Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101. It is located 3 miles from San Diego International Airport and less than one mile from the Santa Fe Depot Amtrak Station in downtown San Diego.
Complimentary shuttle service will be provided November 18–21 for attendees staying at ASHA hotels not within close proximity of the convention center. ADA-accessible shuttle service equipped with a wheelchair lift will be available for all ASHA hotels and any official ASHA event (i.e., ASHFoundation Fundraiser, ASHA PAC Reception, Closing Party) for attendees with mobility issues. (Those who use scooters can typically take advantage of the regular shuttle service; shuttle staff will help stow scooters.) ASHA does not provide airport ground transportation.
