2013 Host City Information
Here, in this little corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the architecture; the food is the stuff of legend. In New Orleans, they say: LAISSEZ LE BONS TEMPS ROULER -- LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL.
AASP 2013 will focus on Lifelong Physical and Mental Well-Being through Sport and Exercise through nearly 100 workshops, lectures, and symposiums. While the conference will have plenty of sessions to choose from, you will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues and catch up with friends. Make sure to take some time as well to experience the New Orleans nightlife, listen to the jazz music, and enjoy the famous Southern fare that you can’t find anywhere else.
In addition to being the home of the 2010 Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints, the city is so many other things…The Crescent City …a sportsman’s paradise … the birthplace of Jazz … a sensory overload with an authentic spirit. Come and experience the most celebrated and historic core of the city – including the Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Central Business District, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street corridor, Garden District, and the beautiful St. Charles Avenue, lined with shady oaks, stately homes, and historic mansions … a place like no other.
