Industry Updates and Quick Solutions

Conference Officially Cancelled

March 11, 2020: In an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our attendees and the patients they serve (who may be part of at-risk populations), the Academy has made the difficult decision to cancel the AAA 2020 + HearTECH Expo (and all related activities and ancillary meetings) due to concerns about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This unanimous decision was made by the Academy’s Board of Directors. 

Full statement and details.


Exhibitors are invited to offer educational programming  through Quick Solutions and Industry Update sessions. 

All abstracts are peer-reviewed in a blind review process. Acceptance of abstracts is based on the content of the submission, available space, and overall program balance.
