Save the Date: 2017 Philadelphia Trans Health Conference is Moving to September
We are pleased to share the official dates of next year’s Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, which will take place Thursday, September 7 through Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
We give a great deal of thought to the timing and planning of the conference each year – and sometimes our plans are impacted by logistics outside our control, such as the availability of the Pennsylvania Convention Center and of sufficient hotel rooms in the area to accommodate our out-of-town attendees. In this case it was a little bit of both (internal and external factors) that led to the change in timing.
Folks who have attended in past years know that the conference has traditionally take place in early June. But after 15 years of organizing and presenting the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, we wanted to build in some additional planning time to review what has worked and what has been a challenge for us in the past. Having the additional three months will enable us to produce a successful 2017 conference and help ensure its future sustainability.
However we do understand the change in season will impact some attendees, and we apologize for any inconvenience. At this time, we don’t know whether this will be a one-time shift, or if the conference will continue to take place in the fall. (But feedback from attendees will no doubt inform our conversations around future dates).
We will keep you posted on further developments regarding the conference here on our website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter channels. You can also sign up for our mailing list, to receive important updates and conference-related news.
