Upcoming Conference Appearances


2021 looks to be another uncertain year as far as in-person conferences go just as 2020 was. With last minute cancellations and lost exhibition fees last year, 2021 events will no doubt be a quiet affair even when things start to regain momentum as immunization passports become key to maintaining a safe exhibit and meeting environment. International in-person events will likely cater only to domestic audiences for the remainder of the year we are being told. Till then, we will no doubt continue with virtual events.
