The 2012 American Atheists National Convention
will be held March 25th and 26th, 2012
(following the Reason Rally
) at the Bethesda North Marriott and Convention Center
as we follow the Reason Rally with our annual convention. Last year, nearly 800 people joined in our largest convention ever, and this year, we intend to break that record. We will feature some the movement's best speakers, live entertainment, and good old-fashioned atheist socializing.
The venue is the beautiful Marriott Bethesda North
, which is right next to the Bethesda METRO stop and boasts beautiful updated rooms and a delicious menu. We will have two meals, including our second-annual costume Buffet and our formal sit-down dinner, plus a celebrities and supporters dinner event.
Don't miss this!
We promise this will be a convention to remember!

Frequently Asked Questions
(For the fastest solutions, please check below for your question before sending an email)
1. Will I receive a paper ticket in the mail for my registration?
No. The registration process is completely digital. You should, however, receive an email confirmation and may bring this with you to the convention, if you would like.
2. The website says that my payment went through, but I can't find the email confirmation. What should I do?
Check your spam filter and make sure you are checking the same email address you used to register. If you still cannot find it, send us an email and we will check to make sure we have you in our system.
3. Will there be one-day passes for people who cannot stay until Monday?
We do not know, right now. As the convention nears, we get closer & closer to completely selling out. If we do, we won't be able to sell one-day passes because more people can't fit!
To be sure you don't get locked out, it's probably best to purchase your registration now.
4. I have a child and want to attend the convention, they are 0-6 years old, do I need to buy a ticket for them?
We are offering FREE DAYCARE for younger children (under 6). Families with children 7-16 will be accomodated, if space allows. Individuals above age 16 should purchase a registration.
