ACR Paris 2020 - COVID-19 Update

As you may have guessed, the 2020 conference chairs and the ACR leadership team have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and making contingency plans should the spread of the virus continue into the fall.

Although we anticipate the 2020 Paris conference to continue as planned in October, it would be prudent of us to monitor the situation and plan for various eventualities. We have been working extensively with conference planners and the Marriott hotel to ensure the safety of our attendees. The hotel has extensive plans in place from setting up sanitization stations, ensuring continuous cleaning, and minimizing physical contact with guests, to the ability to set up special quarantine areas quickly if necessary.

Still, we understand that the decision to attend the conference among the continuous outpouring of news can be of concern to our attendees as they make their conference attendance plans. The leadership team has decided on an early July date to make a final decision on whether we will go ahead with the 2020 conference or cancel it to ensure you have notice far enough in advance on your travel plans.

Rest assured we are working very hard behind the scenes to ensure you are kept safe and that we inform you of any adjustments to our plans. The conference is shaping up beautifully and we have an exciting and productive conference being planned. Your conference experience is important to us and we will do our best to ensure we make decisions with the health and safety of our attendees in mind.
