Why Attend?

Even as many cities are in the midst of reopening, it is clear that uncertainty due to COVID-19 surrounding live events has remained present and persistent. Out of concern for the safety of our AVLS members and Annual Congress attendees, faculty, and exhibitors, AVLS has canceled the in-person aspect of the 2020 Annual Congress in Washington, D.C, and will now host the entire event virtually.

Our web based platform will enable you to access and navigate all of our live sessions as well as on-demand content. It will provide you easy access to the latest product and service developments in our Innovation Hall and Innovation Theatre.

The restructured virtual programming includes expanded committee meetings and member events throughout the week prior to Annual Congress. On-demand content allows attendees to participate at their own pace, watching as much or as little as they want to each day, potentially earning up to 80.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM

Live Stream

Watch all sessions and Innovation Theatre presentations via live stream. View the latest product and service developments in the Virtual Pavilion. Interact with faculty, attendees, and exhibitors in real-time through Q&A, discussion boards, live polls, and video chat. 

On-Demand

All Annual Congress presentations will be available for on-demand viewing from October 15 through December 31, 2020. Browse the abstract ePoster gallery with audio recordings from the authors, and visit the Virtual Innovation Pavilion and Product Showcase.

Interactive

Connect with attendees through the social stream & direct messaging. Browse the Live Stream schedule and build your own personal schedule. Take notes on presentation slides in a second screen experience through the mobile app.
