The AAS offers complimentary meeting registration to bona fide working journalists and public-information officers (PIOs), as described on our press-credentials page.
As of 16 December 2019, advance press registration is closed. Reporters and PIOs who need to register on-site at the Hawaii Convention Center should go straight to the AAS registration desk in the main lobby on Level 1 and ask for an on-site press-registration form. You'll be asked to take it to the AAS Press Office to have the form authorized by the AAS Press Officer, after which you may return to the registration desk to print your badge.
Location: Room 328, Level 3, Hawai‘i Convention Center
Thanks to the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) for generously sponsoring the press office with refreshments for on-site press registrants!
