Home News center Exhibition Report 2020 AACC TO BE AN ALL VIRTUAL EVENT

Due to the threat of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, AACC’s Board of Directors has made a pivotal decision: the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo will be held as a virtual event, rather than as a live meeting in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The meeting will still occur from December 13-17, 2020, so please continue to hold those dates on your calendar.

We are excited by the unprecedented opportunity to reimagine AACC’s flagship scientific conference and expo on an innovative digital platform built for learning, collaboration, networking, and technology exploration. We are committed to delivering a meeting experience comparable in value and impact to our typical face-to-face conference and expo. Most importantly, a virtual meeting ensures the safety of our global audience while providing greater accessibility and flexibility for our attendees to consume world-class scientific content in the way that is most convenient for them.


At this time, we have temporarily paused registration. Our online registration site for the virtual meeting will be available on September 15.

  • If you have already registered, you will be contacted no later than September 15 with instructions for modifying your current registration. You will have the option to cancel for a full refund or convert your registration to a virtual meeting option.
  • If you have made a hotel reservation through the AACC housing site, your reservation will be cancelled automatically. Your credit card will not be charged.
  • If you have not yet registered, please note that registration options for the virtual meeting will be announced soon, and both members and non-members will be able to register online beginning September 15.
