Recognizing that caring for children is a great responsibility, and after the good experience of past congresses, LASA has hired childcare professionals to provide this service to the Congress attendees who need it during LASA2020 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The service will be provided by Accent on Children’s Arrangements, Inc., during the days of the Congress, from Wednesday May 13, through Saturday May 16, 2020.

Place:  Westin Guadalajara Hotel, room TBA.
