2021 Meeting Update
2021 AAAAI Annual Meeting Will Be Entirely Virtual
The AAAAI Board of Directors and the AAAAI Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) have been monitoring the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and the unfortunate trends that heighten concerns over safety, the need for social distancing, and the financial/economic impact on allergy practice. After careful deliberation we have made the decision to change our 2021 Annual Meeting from an in-person event to an entirely virtual program featuring a mix of live streaming and recorded sessions. Read an important message from AAAAI President Mary Beth Fasano, MD, MSPH, FAAAAI, and AMPC Chair Leonard B. Bacharier, MD, FAAAAI, about the decision to go virtual for 2021.
We also have a page of frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to the decision, which will be updated as further information and details become available.

2020 AAAAI Virtual Annual Meeting Recordings Now Available!
The 2020 AAAAI Virtual Annual Meeting includes recordings of various sessions originally programmed for the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting. In addition to offering CME credit for physicians, these recordings can serve as a resource for training students, residents, fellows, and office staff, and can be used to satisfy some MOC requirements.
Were you planning to attend a Non-CME Program at the 2020 Annual Meeting?
A number of sponsored programs that were originally scheduled as Non-CME Educational Programs during the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting have been or will be converted into virtual formats. Some will be live virtual events, while others will be recordings that you can access at your convenience, and some will offer CME by accredited providers other than the AAAAI.
The 2020 AAAAI Virtual Poster Hall is Available
The authors of all posters, oral abstract presentations, and case reports originally scheduled for the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting were invited to submit their work to be featured in the Virtual Poster Hall. Each virtual poster or oral session includes a link to a discussion board where you can post questions for the abstract authors. The posters and oral abstracts are displayed based on their slotting in the Annual Meeting program.
