Frequently Asked Questions
Given the immense uncertainty today about our ability to gather in person come next August, we expect many of you have questions, as we do too!
Below are responses to frequently asked questions. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us - firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to submit an abstract, but my company policy does not allow travel right now, and I don’t know if that will still be the case by next summer. If my presentation is selected, what will happen if I am not allowed to attend in person? While our goal is to deliver the entire technical program in-person at the Convention Center, we are preparing for the necessity to include virtual presentations at the conference. At this time, we are asking everyone to submit their abstracts by the deadline, and see where we are when final selections are being made next spring. Our hope is that everyone can attend in-person!
I’m an exhibitor – will I have the same booth space as I purchased for 2020? At this time, yes – even with restricted capacity, our exhibit hall layout is currently accepted by the fire marshal and safe distancing requirements.
I had to cancel my booth for 2020 – can I get that back for 2021 before someone else can buy it? Yes – as long as the capacity remains at its current level. Those companies affected will be contacted after January 1.
When will remaining exhibit booths go on sale? We expect to open sales for the remaining booths by April 1, 2021.
My company purchased a sponsorship for the 2020 conference, and “rolled it over” for the 2021 conference. Is everything going to stay the same for 2021 sponsors? We are evaluating all sponsorships at this time. Should we change our program, all sponsorships will be refunded, and new sponsorship opportunities will be announced.
