Meeting Room Overcrowding

ASCE will make every effort to schedule popular events in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Because many events are extremely popular, it is wise to select alternative events as you plan your Conference schedule ASCE and the host facilities are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms at capacity to choose another event.
