You must register for the Symposium first. Once you register for the Symposium, you will receive an email with instructions and links to register for tours. 

Can I go on a tour if I am not registered for the Symposium?

Individual tickets for tours that have not sold out will be made available to the public in May.

A tour I want to go on is full, what should I do? 

Please add yourself to the waitlist. In many cases, we are able to accomodate waitlist requests. If there are enough people on the waitlist, we can consider adding a tour. We do our best to accomodate everyone but space is limited. If there is a tour you really want to go on, the best thing to do is register early.


I am a sponsor. How do I use my comped registrations and tours?

Please email the following information to full name as it should appear on a name badge; title; affiliation; email address of the person being registered; the name of each tour the person would like to register for. Docomomo US staff will complete the registration and a confirmation email will be sent to the email addresses provided. 


Does the Symposium have a virtual component?

All speakers are asked to provide a recorded version of their presentations. Recordings will be made available after the Symposium, free to Symposium attendees and at a minimal rate for Docomomo US members and the public.


Are there hotel blocks reserved?


The Mayfair House in Coconut Grove, designed by Kenneth Triester, will be the main hotel of the Symposium. Other hotels in Coconut Grove will also be recommended. Booking links coming soon.

Do I need a car/what is the best way to get around?

We do recommend a car as the best mode of transport, however ride shares such as Lyft and Uber are readily available and relatively inexpensive. There will be some events in walking distance of each other and some events where Docomomo US will provide bussing. The Mayfair Hotel is in downtown Coconut Grove with great restaurants and other amenities all right at the doorstep.
