APTA's biggest event of the year is now APTA's biggest event of all time: The 2018 Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) drew more than 17,000 people, including more than 14,000 registrants. This year marks the third year in a row that CSM achieved a record attendance number.

This year's event, held in New Orleans February 21-24, was expanded to 3 venues and included an exhibit hall with more than 450 companies participating. In addition to hundreds of educational sessions covering a wide range of topics, the 2018 CSM also included poster presentations, preconference courses, and extensive opportunities for networking—all set in a city that lets the good time roll.

Unable to attend and interested in getting a taste of what it's all about? Attending CSM and wondering what you missed? Check out the CSM daily news and a growing collection of video dispatches from the event.

The 2019 CSM is scheduled for January 23-26 in Washington DC. Organizers are now accepting proposals for educational sessions and preconference courses as well as poster and platform presentations.

Don't wait for next year to connect, learn, and get energized: plan on attending the 2018 APTA NEXT Conference and Exposition, set for June 27-30 in Orlando.
