ASHA Convention 2010

It’s that time again…time for ASHA’s annual Convention. This year’s Convention is taking place in Philadelphia, PA and promises to offer both great content and opportunities for attendees to connect with each other both online and in person.

The past few years, ASHA has been using Twitter during Convention to communicate with attendees in real-time, and to allow attendees and exhibitors to connect with both ASHA and each other. Even if you’re not attending Convention this year, you can follow along by searching for #ashaconv on Twitter. And if you are there, make sure to check out the “Twitter Wall” in the ASHA Member Service Center.

For the first time, ASHA will be hosting a Tweetup on Friday morning at 7 am in the Overlook Cafe on the 3rd level of the Convention Center. We’ll be posting photos here on ASHAsphere and also on the ASHA Facebook Page. Please feel free to add your own Convention photos to the album on Facebook, and watch the Wall of the Facebook Page for special announcements and deals in the ASHA Bookstore.

Throughout the rest of this week, ASHAsphere will be featuring posts by guest bloggers attending Convention. If you have a post you’d like to contribute, either before, during or after the event, you can contact me (Maggie McGary) either via email at or look for me in Philadelphia.

Do you have tips for first-time attendees? Suggestions for things to do or see in Philadelphia? Memorable moments from past conventions? Please share them in the comments!

    Two really good places where we locals go:

    McGillin’s (since 1860) is a short stroll near City Hall & the Convention Center at 1310 Drury Street. Drury is an east-west street bounded by 13th and Juniper, and between Sansom and Chestnut. Google Map

    Just a 5 minute cab ride to Marra’s Pizza (since 1928) at 1734 East Passyunk, for the best pizza and quite good Italian food, right in the heart of South Philly. Google Map.
