AO moves Annual Meeting forward with dynamic virtual symposium


After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the Academy of Osseointegration’s (AO) board of directors decided to deliver its 36th Annual Meeting in an exciting, interactive, fully virtual format on 12-14 March 2021.

Ultimately, the ongoing health concerns relating to the Coronavirus, travel and other restrictions, and compliance with public health guidelines, prevents or otherwise renders it impracticable for the Annual Meeting to proceed in person, as originally scheduled for March 2021 in Kissimmee, Florida, United States.

Despite this change in plans, AO continues to engage with its speakers, exhibitors, attendees, and others in connection with its activities and events. The Academy’s board, staff and Annual Meeting planning committee are working diligently to offer participants a stimulating, comprehensive, and interactive virtual programme that will deliver dynamic plenary and symposia presentations, cutting edge research through abstracts and e-posters, an interactive exhibit hall experience and networking with peers across all disciplines.

Dr Clark Stanford, president of AO, said, “We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to address questions and provide additional information to our planned participants and other guests. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you and be safe!”
