TAPF Annual Meeting 2020 is Canceled
Dear TAPF members and abstract authors,
In the current circumstances that the COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating and affecting people worldwide, the TAPF 2020 Annual Conference will be canceled and rescheduled to May 29-30, 2021 (the Memorial Day weekend) at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
While an incredible amount of work went into planning this year’s educational program, the TAPF Meeting Organizing Committee felt it was necessary to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting in order to protect the health and safety of attendees. TAPF will provide full refunds for registration fees. Those who arranged travel and/or hotel reservations (including Mandalay Bay), please contact the airline and/or hotel directly to arrange the cancellation.
We understand that the abstract authors have put immense time and energy into preparing their presentations. The TAPF Meeting Organizing Committee is discussing a possibility of inviting the authors (who previously submitted abstract) to present their work to TAPF Meeting faculty in a virtual format and receive feedback (no fees). More information to follow by early May.
The TAPF wishes to sincerely thank everyone for their patience throughout this decision-making process. If there are questions or concerns, please contact us at TAPF.email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you in May 2021!
