ADC 2020 POSTPONED

In response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation to cancel or postpone group meetings of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we unfortunately will be postponing ADC 2020 in Washington, DC.

We are working closely with the Capital Hilton to identify dates later in the year for our meeting. Your registration credit for ADC 2020 will be applied to the future conference date. We will share more details with you as we have them.

This was a difficult decision, that we had hoped would not be necessary, but the health and safety of both our attendees and patients and our communities come first.

What do I need to do?

  • Please wait to modify your hotel reservation until we're able to confirm the postponement dates.
  • If you had one, please cancel airline reservations and car rental reservations.
  • Stay safe and healthy!
