Welcome to the Big Apple!
After several years "away from home," ABCT returns to its home city for the 43rd Annual Convention. Founded in New York and housed in New York, ABCT has demonstrated that, like the song says, if we can make it here, we can make it anywhere.
New York is, without question, one of the world's great cities. The conference experience will be enhanced by the energy, vitality, and magic of New York. Our conference venue at the Marriott Marquis places us in Times Square, the heart of Manhattan.
The challenge at any ABCT conference is how to see, hear, and participate in myriad activities. Add the wonders of New York and the conference experience is made both more complex and even more exciting.
A quick cab ride from the hotel will take you anywhere in Manhattan. Maybe a ride down to Katz's deli for the best corned beef sandwich anywhere (think Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal . . . "I'll have what she's having"). A short walk from our hotel will put you in the theatre district: filled with song and dance as well as fabulous restaurants. Come early, if you can, to experience the museums, the neighborhoods, and the shopping. There is so much to see and do in New York. Please enjoy it all!
Review the program carefully. We have planned another superb conference with the very best speakers, the broadest range of topics, and among the world's experts in the theory, research, and practice of the behavioral and cognitive therapies.
