American Bamboo Society Conference
Additional Conference Information
- We hoped to avoid masks since all attendees must be vaccinated, but the current Delta surge means more precautions must be taken for to avoid a “bamboo super-spreader event”
- We are limiting the total number of attendees (including speakers) to 70. That’s why there are only 6 slots left.
- Please bring an ample supply of masks (N-95s are suggested) + your favorite hand sanitizer

- This year, the best way to get to the conference is to drive your own car!
- Many of you will be travelling from afar, thus you must fly. Rental cars are the next best option.
- Airport shuttle service is another option. The Groome drop-off in Perry is less than a 10-min walk from the hotel and Georgia Peach offers door-to-door service.
- During the conference, transportation to and from event venues will be via your own vehicle or voluntary carpools.
- When you register, you can let us know if you want to carpool:
- from home to the conference (more like a rideshare)
- from the airport to the conference
- around the area during the conference
