ASTA Global Convention 2016 feedback:

The ASTA Global Convention 2016 was a highly informative and inspirational experience. The content was rich, relevant and the presenters were engaging. The duration and size of the convention was very comfortable; not too large, but extremely comprehensive nonetheless.


The ASTA Global Convention is a great way to not only strengthen my business, but also expand my knowledge and opportunities.  The contacts and content are outstanding in leading us into the future.


The ASTA Global Convention is quickly becoming THE industry event of the year. I am grateful to the current administration and board for their tremendous collective effort to bring ASTA into the 21st century.  ASTA has evolved into an extremely relevant organization and membership is a no-brainer, as there's so much to be gained.
