AACC and the 2021 Annual Meeting Organizing Committee (AMOC) recognize that everyone is concerned about how COVID-19 will impact the 2021 meeting. With that in mind, we wanted to keep you apprised about the meeting formats we are considering for next year. While we are still weighing our options, the main scenarios we are currently looking at are either an in-person meeting with added virtual components, or a mix that is focused more on virtual participation but with some in-person components. At this time, we believe these are the best options for ensuring the health and safety of our community—which is always our highest priority—while also preserving the enormous social benefits of an in-person meeting.
We will provide more details on in-person vs. virtual options for attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and abstract presenters as soon as we have them. Thank you for your flexibility and patience during this uncertain time, and we look forward to seeing you next year.
