AST heads to southern California for its 47th annual meeting. Known for its beautiful weather, surf-friendly beaches and family-friendly attractions, San Diego offers something for everyone. Our hotel location is prime for watching boats on the harbor, and you'll be within walking district of the famed Gaslight District offering you a taste of flamenco dancing and a variety of bars and restaurants catering to every palate. Go whale watching on Point Loma, panda watching at the San Diego Zoo and try out your moves with some Zydeco dancing at the Bon Temps Social Club -- all in nearby Balboa Park. We hope you'll join us in sunny SoCal in 2016!
