AER is taking over the Sheraton/Le Meridien Hotel in uptown Charlotte from July 24-28, 2024. We have big plans in store for you as we celebrate our 40th anniversary in what will surely be an informative and fun gathering of everyone working in the education and rehabilitation of people who are blind or have low vision! Just imagine five days of curated sessions, events, and special celebrations.

We know that your objective is to attend and learn, and we’ve got you covered with nearly 150 breakout sessions to choose from, but be prepared to have a great time too! If you’ve never been to Charlotte, you are in for a treat. Bring the family, come early, and stay late. You won’t regret it!

Known as The Queen City, Charlotte is the home to nearly 80 breweries, museums, parks, botanical gardens, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and it also happens to be the banking capital of the south. As you can tell, we are excited about not only the educational opportunities you will experience during this exciting week but also for taking you to our first-ever AER International Conference in North Carolina.

Registration is now open! Please click here to get started.

Plan now to join us for the AER International Conference 2024! It will be the experience of a lifetime.
