IAOM Reschedules Annual Conference & Expo
IAOM has rescheduled its 125th Anniversary Conference & Expo for August 29-September 2, 2021 at the Little Rock Marriott and Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, US.
Originally scheduled for April 2021, the IAOM board of directors decided to postpone the event due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Registration for the IAOM event will open in June.
“It seems likely that holding a conference in person in April could still be difficult due to the risks associated with the pandemic,” stated IAOM President David Jansen. “We hope that by pushing back the date of next year’s conference, we’ll be able to better mitigate any risks related to COVID-19. Although we’ve managed to have several virtual events this year, we know that many in our association prefer the interaction and networking that comes from in-person meetings.”
Currently, Little Rock limits mass gatherings to 66% of the capacity restrictions per venue.
“The health and safety of our milling community is our highest priority; the conference will only be held in person when it is safe to do so,” stated Jansen.
”The Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) has announced that it has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, LRCVB has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in the Statehouse Convention Center.”
Join hundreds of milling professionals from across North America and around the world when they convene in Little Rock, Arkansas from August 29-September 2, 2021 for IAOM’s 125th Anniversary Conference & Expo.
