The 2020 Joint Statistical Meetings will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

Housing reservations must be made through the official JSM Housing Bureau, which will open April 30, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. EDT.


Several hotel options will be available, including a limited number of US government rate rooms. Room night costs range from $195–$230 per night, plus tax (currently 15.5%, subject to change).

For information about the US federal government rates for the Philadelphia region, see the U.S. General Services Administration website.

Importance of Staying in the Official Meetings Hotels

Your patronage of the official convention headquarter and overflow hotels enables the ASA to secure the meeting space at a greatly reduced cost, which helps keep the cost of the meetings and your registration fees down. With your cooperation, the ASA will continue to be successful in negotiating good contracts for the Joint Statistical Meetings and maintaining the programs and activities you have requested.


Important Message About Hotel Reservations

The official housing bureau for JSM does not solicit reservations by phone or email. If you are contacted by any housing bureau, we urge you to report them to ASA staff at meetings@amstat.org. If you receive a call or email from any company offering to make hotel reservations for you over our meeting dates, we urge you to not book with them. These companies are not affiliated with JSM or the ASA in any way and therefore are not authorized to make reservations on our behalf. While the rates may sound good, unauthorized companies typically require nonrefundable, pre-paid reservations and often end up moving individuals to other hotels. If you book with an unauthorized company, the ASA cannot protect you if there is a problem with your reservation when you arrive in Philadelphia.
