For the 2020 ITA Annual Conference, as a result of the severe global disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ITA Executive Board has unanimously decided to postpone the traditional conference until September 26 - 28, 2021. The 2021 Conference will be held in Rome, Italy.
In place of this year's scheduled conference, the Executive Board has decided to hold a "virtual" event this September. We are tentatively planning for six to eight industry related speakers, in a format which may include webinars, video presentations and the sharing of industry updates with all ITA member companies. The virtual event will have a revised program, details of which will be shared in the summer.
As well, we are planning to expand our traditional 2021 ITA Semi-Annual General Assembly meeting held during the TMS meeting next spring. TMS will be held in Orlando, Florida from March 14 - 18. The association traditionally meets on the Monday morning of TMS, which we will continue. Details for the expanded meeting and events will be shared later this year.
If you have any questions or would like to propose a presentation topic for the virtual event, please contact us at your convenience.
We thank you for continued support to the association.
Take care and be safe!
