2016 Annual Meeting Recap

Thank you all who joined AAEA in Boston! At this past years’ Annual Meeting, we hosted over 1600 attendees who presented more than 700 sessions and 200 posters with informative, high quality presentations. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the program – we hope you will consider presenting again next year in Chicago.

A special thank you goes out to the Selected Presentations Committee, Topic Leaders, and Reviewers who donated a great amount of time and effort to bring together such a strong program this year. These teams and individuals dedicated many, many hours fielding abstract submissions and creating cohesive sessions. We’d also like to thank all of the Section leaders and members who put together successful Track Sessions. Congratulations!

Attendees’ feedback reinforced the benefits of the networking opportunities we provide, especially emphasizing appreciation for the AAEA Annual Meeting tradition, Reunions & Receptions, hosted by universities and other institutions. In 2017, receptions will take place on both Sunday and Monday evenings to provide double the opportunity to raise a glass with friends, colleagues, and acquaintances old and new.

We always genuinely appreciate your feedback and will use your comments to develop upcoming AAEA meetings.

Mark Your Calendar for 2017

We have been vigorously planning for the 2017 Annual Meeting, when AAEA will be heading to the Windy City of Chicago, IL. The meeting will be held from July 30-August 1 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.

With the hotel and meeting space located right downtown on Michigan Avenue, Chicago's top attractions - Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Theaters and Museums – are all just a walk away. Grab coffee or a bite to eat right in the hotel, or take just a few steps out to reach the endless options nearby. We encourage all attendees to book a hotel room at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile under the AAEA room block. Single and Double room rates start at $195 per night. The block will be opening soon! Visit the Annual Meeting Hotel Information page for updates.
