The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) held its 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting Nov. 7–11 in Houston. Over 2,200 registrants (including physicians, allied health professionals, and guests) attended the meeting and approximately 70 educational sessions were presented at the meeting, titled New Frontiers: Advocating for Patients, Practices and Research. The meeting featured 34 hours of CME credit with 9 sessions eligible for ABAI MOC credit, a bustling exhibit hall and tremendous networking opportunities.

ACAAI was EAI’s first client, and we’ve been working hand-in-hand to make their meetings successful for nearly 40 years. This year’s program continues a trajectory we began last year, featuring a streamlined schedule and new session types like Ask the Expert Roundtables which provide attendees an opportunity to get up close and personal with experts in the field. The brand-new Allergen Extract Mixing Course, specifically created to help allergists understand and comply with new regulations that will affect their practice, was a big hit! And the welcome reception held at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, offered a chance for attendees to step into the dugouts and get a photo with the World Series trophy.

We’re already at work planning for the 2020 ACAAI Annual Meeting, and we’re looking forward to another great program in Phoenix!

Thanks to all the ACAAI staff in making the Houston Meeting the best yet. Definitely sets a high bar for Phoenix.
