Event Calendar

Members of ADS meet twice a year.

The Spring Technical Meeting emphasizes science-based issues and includes an Information Open House (an informal tabletop exhibit) and new product and services presentations (held every other year) by members. The Annual Meeting in the Fall has a marketing focus.

Additionally, several networking opportunities are provided at both meetings. It is through this non-proprietary exchange of information that ADS members realize some of the greatest benefits of industry collaboration.

Technical Meetings

Rescheduled 2020 Technical Meeting

As previously advised, ADS’ Board of Directors and staff have been monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak.  The safety of our members is a top priority in all ADS events.  Given the current situation, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone and reschedule the Technical Meeting to October 2020 in Scottsdale and subsequently cancel the Annual Meeting previously scheduled in this time slot.  The location and tentative dates (to be confirmed in the near future) for the re-scheduled Technical Meeting are provided below.

October 4-6 (tentative)
Scottsdale Plaza Resort, Scottsdale, Arizona

Current Technical Meeting registrations will be applied to the re-scheduled Technical Meeting.  If a member needs to cancel, ADS will maintain the $100 cancellation fee until August 7, 2020.  Any cancellations after August 7, 2020 will result in a $500 cancellation fee, and no refunds will be issued after September 18, 2020. 

If you haven’t done so already, contact the Sheraton New Orleans hotel (504/525-2500) to cancel your April room reservations to avoid penalties.

Further updates will be provided as we have them.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
