When registering for the 2021 ASCRS Annual Meeting and the 2021 ASOA Annual Meeting be sure to do so through the official ASCRS registration system. We have received reports that other companies – not affiliated with ASCRS or ASOA – are posing as official registration vendors. ASCRS and ASOA only guarantee registrations made through our own site (the registration pages will have the logo for Convention Data Services in the page footer). Registrations made outside of the official registration system may result in your registration not being recognized onsite at the meeting. If you have any questions, contact ASCRS Registration Department.
Questions about registration: 703-591-2220 between 8:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m. ET, or email email@example.com.
