The 2015 Annual Meeting will now be held at the ASTOR CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL

October 2-4, 2015

739 Canal Street at Bourbon
New Orleans, LA 70130


Pre-Registration has closed. You may register on-site and pick up your packet if you have already registered during the following hours at the ASTOR CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL, Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor):

Saturday, October 3: 6:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Conference Events

The anticipated noise level in our originally scheduled room in the JW Marriott has potential to cause a negative impact on the Annual Meeting. In order to minimize that risk and provide an enjoyable meeting, we have made arrangements at an alternative hotel. All conference events, including sessions, meals, exhibits and registration will be held in the Grand Ballroom located on the 2nd floor at the Astor Crowne Plaza hotel.

Exhibit Information

Exhibits will be held in Grand Ballroom A&B of the Astor Crowne Plaza. You will still receive a 6' draped and skirted table, a wastebasket, 2 chairs and table tent sign with your company name and the schedule will not change. 

Have you shipped your materials to the JW Marriott? Please let us know by emailing so we can make arrangements to have your items delivered to the Astor Crowne Plaza for set up on Friday. Please let us know how many boxes you sent, recipient name and any other details that would help ensure that we get your materials to the new hotel. 


Hotel Reservations


If you booked your hotel stay at the JW Marriott, please keep your reservation as rooms are currently unavailable at nearby hotels.  


Construction at the JW Marriott is being done on the third floor, adjacent to the meeting room for which our sessions were originally scheduled. Sleeping rooms begin on the ninth floor and are on the opposite side of the building. The JW Marriott has assured us that construction noise should not carry to your hotel room and will not occur during sleeping hours.
