Travel and Housing

It's never too early to plan travel to the Annual Meeting.  View the schedule of events to determine your dates of travel and lodging.

Travel to New Orleans
New Orleans is served by Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY). APHA has negotiated discounted travel fares with a number of airlines, Amtrak and Avis Car Rental for those traveling to the Meeting. International attendees should view visa information before making arrangements. 

Travel to and from the Airport
APHA attendees can take advantage of discounted rates for shuttle transportation to and from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) on the Airport Shuttle. Make your advance reservation.

Travel around New Orleans

Housing
Make your hotel reservations as soon as possible! Due to overwhelming demand, we have recently added several new hotels which are in the process of being added to the online housing form. If you encounter difficulty in reserving a room or your search does not bring up any available hotel rooms, please complete and fax in a housing reservation form. As new rooms open up and cancellations are made, we will make every effort to respond to your request and to confirm a hotel room for you.

Consider sharing a room with another attendee. View the roommate locator to find a guaranteed room.
