AAO 2020: Now Virtual
In light of epidemiological projections, government regulations and public health mandates to prevent the spread of disease — including social distancing, limited crowd sizes and face coverings — the Academy has been forced to cancel its in-person annual meeting this year.
The Academy will present a virtual-only event to engage and connect members and to deliver the critical scientific and clinical information that you expect from the most important ophthalmology meeting of the year.
If you have already registered for the meeting, we will send you information by Wednesday, Aug. 12 about your options:
- Receiving a refund
- Applying payments made to the AAO 2020 virtual meeting
- Transferring your registration to AAO 2021 in New Orleans
If your hotel reservation was made through the official housing service, Expovision, your reservation will be automatically cancelled. If you made your reservation on your own, you will need to cancel directly with the hotel.
Additional information about the program and the exhibition will be available soon. Find answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
Thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to sharing more information about the AAO 2020 virtual meeting within the coming weeks.
