Registration for the Virtual IAHSS 2020 Annual Conference Closes August 20
IAHSS’ online conference is now scheduled for September 1-3.
Original June 25, 2020 announcement:
CHICAGO — The International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS) announced on Thursday that its annual conference and exhibition will now take place September 1-3 as a virtual event.
The in-person event was originally scheduled for May 4-6 and was to be held in Phoenix, Arizona. It was then postponed to August 17-19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, safety considerations have prompted the association to cancel the in-person conference and hold it online.
“The safety of our attendees and community is our biggest concern,” IAHSS President Roy Williams III said in a statement. “Due to recent reports of rising COVID-19 cases in Arizona, the decision to convert the 2020 Annual Conference and Exhibition was essential. Potentially exposing those in attendance to COVID-19 is not a risk IAHSS is willing to take.
“IAHSS is committing to delivering an exceptional virtual conference that will include: industry-leading education, networking, videos, live Q&As with presenters, an exhibit hall with solution-focused partners, and a sense of community. IAHSS staff, along with our team of subject matter experts are dedicated to assembling a virtual conference that you will find educational, valuable and engaging.”
For the individuals who had planned on attending the in-person event and reserved a hotel room at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass or the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino, your reservation will be automatically cancelled, and you will receive a cancellation confirmation email by July 13.
