Frequently Asked Questions

The 2017 ASRM Scientific Congress & Expo will be held in San Antonio, Texas, USA, October 28-November 1, 2017.

Here's what's new:
  1. We’ve brought back lunch! There is now a designated time, 12:30-1:30 pm, for either a ticketed lunchtime activity or for you to grab lunch and network with colleagues. We offer several non-CME activities at that time including roundtables, industry-supported offerings, and our new Expert Encounters.
  2. What’s an Expert Encounter? This is your opportunity to ask questions and have a dialogue and lunch with an expert on select topic areas. Space is limited and these will sell out, so book your slot early!
  3. We’ve added even more roundtable discussions.
  4. More Than a Mother By Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany in partnership with Africa Fertility Society Lunch Symposium
  5. Our meeting app is improved and the best ever!
  6. We will have a Pre-Congress course, as well as roundtables and symposia, in Spanish.
  7. It’s Halloween with several spooktacular evening activities. And it’s Día de los Muertos, when San Antonio embraces the day to remember loved ones who have departed. Plan to join in this colorful celebration with music and dance, along with a drum and puppet procession through downtown San Antonio.
