When we cancelled IAVRPT 2020, we were all anticipating to welcome delegates from across the globe at this year’s conference in Cambridge. We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and, after consultation with our members and interested parties and at a time of continued uncertainty, we made the difficult decision that the IAVRPT 2021 symposium should also be postponed until Summer 2022 when it will be hosted by the University of Cambridge. Vaccines are now being rolled out across the world and we hope that by 2022, the global travel restrictions will have been lifted and we can host our international symposium in the way we had initially planned. This is disappointing for many of our members but continuing the preparations for IAVRPT 2021 under the current circumstances would have exposed the association to an unacceptably high financial risk.
Thank you for your patience, support and understanding during this extraordinary and challenging situation. We wish you well in the forthcoming year and look forward to welcoming you in Cambridge next year.
The IAVRPT 2022 Organising Committee.
