You asked, we listened — #AHS17 is coming to the Pacific Northwest! The perfect setting for urban adventure, Seattle offers world-class markets, beautiful green spaces, and an impressive collection of restaurants focusing on healthy, local fare. Plus, the hilly landscape is full of hiking and biking trails to enjoy as you explore the city.
AHS17 will be held at the the University of Washington in Kane Hall on September 7-9 from 9 AM – 5 PM.
You’ll be able to pick up your badge at Kane Hall from 12-5 PM, Wednesday or beginning at 8 AM Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Registration may also be purchased at those times.
Single and double room dorm accommodations on campus will be available. UW has beautiful, new, bright dorms within walking distance of Kane Hall.
We will be securing a room block at a nearby hotel; details will be announced shortly!

We’re in the midst of putting together a list of restaurant recommendations. Restaurants in Seattle showcase locally-caught produce, freshly-caught seafood, and the flavours of the Pacific Northwest. Food tours are a great way to experience the culinary hot spots. Learn more here.

AHS will be held in rooms 210 and 220 of Kane Hall (capacity 900 when seated theater-style), with a separate room for exhibitors, registration, book signing, and posters (Kane Hall 225).
The $1000 exhibit fee includes the following:
attendance for two company representatives;
a draped table and two chairs;
your company’s name and logo on the symposium page of our website;
your company’s name and logo in our online program
In an effort to keep registration fees as reasonable as possible (for attendees and exhibitors) and in order to reduce the environmental impact of the Symposium, we have chosen to forgo printed programs and gift bags.
