2021 AAVP Annual Meeting
This year’s meeting will be held in a hybrid format, which means that it can be attended remotely as well as in person. All presentations will be available on-demand at the meeting website and on the meeting mobile app. In addition, all hybrid sessions (plenaries, award recipient presentations and sponsored presentations) can be attended live both remotely and in person. For those attending in person we will have the traditional podium sessions, coffee breaks, sponsored luncheons and sponsored evening socials.
Following the new CDC guidelines the Governor of Kentucky has announced that all COVID restrictions will be lifted on June 11, 2021. This means that there will be no restrictions for social gatherings, and masks will no longer be required at the hotel or on public grounds. However, the Hilton Hotel will maintain current cleanliness procedures, and all hotel staff will be wearing masks and catering and food personnel will be wearing gloves. In addition, masks are still recommended for guests not fully vaccinated against COVID.
Registration will remain open as long as the virtual component of the conference is available (until August 22, 2021). However, please allow 24-48 hours for your registration to be processed and logon information to be provided. If you would like access to attend the scheduled live hybrid sessions (plenaries, award recipient presentations and sponsored sessions), we will need your registration by midnight (EST) on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
Student members presenting at the meeting are eligible for AAVP travel grants. Furthermore, we offer additionally discounted room rates at the Hilton Hotel for student attendees. All students are encouraged to contact student representatives Kathryn Duncan and Julie Thompson for further information about the meeting.
