Academy Reschedules AAOS 2021 Annual Meeting
The AAOS 2021 Annual Meeting will now take place Aug. 31, 2021, to Sept. 4, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center.
Registration will open in April 2021, and the meeting will include both in-person and online educational programming.
The AAOS Board of Directors approved the recommendation to reschedule the meeting, originally slated to occur in March 2021, after significant evaluation and scenario planning focusing on the health and safety of all meeting participants. To host a meeting of this scope and size in the spring of 2021 remains very unpredictable given the recurring surges of COVID-19 in the United States.
The scheduling shift seeks to minimize any risk to public health and allows additional time to plan and produce a safe gathering for the trusted leaders in orthopaedics. Attendees can expect high-quality education and innovation as well as opportunities to engage and collaborate both in person and online.
For those who have reserved housing already, an email will be sent confirming your room cancellation from onPeak, AAOS’ official housing provider. Sign up to receive the latest meeting details and new information as it becomes available at https://form.jotform.com/91923604821153.
Through the very challenging circumstances and trying times in the world today, rest assured that the AAOS leadership and Annual Meeting volunteers and staff are committed to making the AAOS 2021 Annual Meeting a safe, memorable, and engaging experience for all who participate.
