The Aquaculture Canada and WAS North America 2020 conference (a partnership of the Aquaculture Association of Canada (AAC), World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and the Newfoundland Aquaculture Industry Association (NAIA)) will be rescheduled to September 26-29, 2021, at the St. John’s Convention Centre, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
As we know, the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has impacted all events and travel planning globally. The health, safety and well-being of attendees is paramount in any decisions made by the Steering Committee. The health protection guidance in many countries has restricted global travel and has halted large scale public events.
Please note that all originally planned events and sessions for the conference will proceed as planned with exception of the dates. This meeting will still also represent the 2021 annual meetings of the AAC and NAIA. Submitted abstracts to date will continue to be processed by the Program Committee and all registrations will continue to be valid. The abstract deadline will be changed to April 2, 2021.
Booth bookings will continue to be acknowledged. Conference management will send you the updated manual and all other information.
If you have made accommodation arrangements, it is recommended that you follow up with your hotel directly regarding cancellations. Hotel room bookings will not be rolled over to 2021. Please continue to follow the conference website for new hotel booking information.
