Register to Attend

The 2020 AAG Annual Meeting will take place in Denver, CO from Monday, April 6, to Friday, April 10, 2020.

Please lookout for weekly Annual Meeting Geograms and check our website, Facebook, and Twitter for meeting updates.

Due to a glitch in our registration software, some attendees have had difficulty registering because their personal computers and devices are translating AAG's registration fees from U.S. Dollars to their native currency. Our system is only able to process registrations in U.S. Dollars, so please switch your primary language settings on your computer to English (United States) before registering for the annual meeting. This will solve the error problems that some folks have been experiencing.


To participate in the Annual Meeting, all attendees must pay the appropriate registration fee. You will not be able to submit an abstract for presentation if you are not registered for the meeting. All advanced registration fees may be paid online.
