Registration and housing

We encourage everyone to register for the full-meeting. One-day registration is currently available only to presenters and moderators, who can take advantage of the Early-Bird and Advance rates. All attendees can register for one-day at the Final rate beginning on Sept. 24.

  • One-day registration includes access to live events and session recordings for the day you register and access to pre-meeting live events and all on-demand content.
  • Poster presenters looking to register for just one day may select any day to register, Sunday-Wednesday. One-day registration includes access to live events and session recordings for the day you register and access to pre-meeting live events such as the poster presentations.
  • Reserve a room in the official APHA housing block for the best rates and shortest distances to the convention center.
