Charleston is well known for its hospitality, and the Annual Reception is a true Charleston affair! The reception will be held at the South Carolina Aquarium.

You’ll encounter surprises around every corner and an experience straight from the island of Madagascar is closer than you imagine. The Shark Shallows 20,000 gallon touch tank exhibit will also be open to attendees.

Delicious lowcountry specialties, as well as more familiar reception fare, will be served. Beer, wine, and soft drinks provided at the bar. Live musical entertainment by Ricky McCants and the Catz. We'll also have a photo booth, sponsored by Taylor & Francis, to take souvenir photos with fun props.

Shuttle transportation will be provided. Pick up one of the shuttles at any conference location and let the driver know you wish to attend the reception at the aquarium. We can't wait to see you there!
