Mailing Tickets / Will Call
Asia Society Texas Center does not mail tickets.
Ticket holders for in-person programs must check in at Will Call, located at the front desk, to receive their seat designations. Will Call generally opens one (1) hour prior to the start of an event and remains open until 30 minutes after the start of an event.
Please be aware that all in-person programs start promptly. To minimize disruptions, guests arriving after the start of a program will be seated a suitable interval designated by Asia Society Texas staff in close consultation with the artists and speakers. We recommend ticket holders arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of an event to find parking and safely take their seats.
Refunds and Exchanges
Tickets are nonrefundable, except in cases of postponed or canceled events. Should a program be canceled due to restrictions on gatherings related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ticket holders will be contacted with options to exchange tickets for a different event, request a refund, or convert their ticket purchase to a donation in support of Asia Society's mission. A service charge may apply. For more information, please call 713.496.9901.
Any ticket holder who feels unwell, has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, has had close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of a program, or is displaying symptoms related to COVID-19 as outlined by the CDC should not come to Asia Society Texas Center. Please call the front desk at 713.496.9901 and we are happy to exchange tickets for a different program.
Tickets for a program canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions can be converted to a tax-deductible contribution. A letter acknowledging this contribution will be mailed to ticket holders for tax purposes.
