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. In order to maintain necessary physical distancing measures during the seating process, Asia Society cannot guarantee the availability of late seating at this time. We strongly 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.
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.
