At the Convention

See you in New Orleans!

We're excited to see you in New Orleans! Check here for information about events, activities, restaurants and more that you'll find in when you're at the conference! The conference takes place from Wednesday, February 18th - Saturday February 21st.

Get to Know the City

The New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau has built a special informational page for ISA attendees. This is a great resource for learning about activities and opportunities in the city. They have also partnered with local businesses to bring exciting deals for our attendees. We recommend that you pay close attention to their travel suggestions and parade routes as Mardi Gras may affect your travel. We look forward to welcoming you to the Big Easy.

Program and Events

The Program Chair, and our Section Program Chairs, have worked hard this summer putting together a great program. We also have many events, meetings and receptions that you're welcome to attend!
