NASP 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo is CANCELED
NASP leadership has continued to closely monitor updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as what is taking place in our communities across the country since the pandemic began. Due to the increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases throughout the U.S., the potential risks to those who are vaccinated and those who aren’t, not only to our guests but also their families and the communities they will travel home to, the increasing numbers of organizations re-instituting travel bans, and the shortage of hospital staff and critical and intensive care beds and the impacts of all of these factors on our ability to ensure your health and safety while delivering the NASP 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo experience that you deserve and have come to expect, we had no choice but to make the necessary and responsible decision to cancel the conference. Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, staff, families, healthcare workers, and ultimately our communities is always our highest priority. It was a heart breaking and incredibly difficult decision, but put simply, is it the right thing to do during this unprecedented time.
Will you have an Annual Meeting & Expo in 2022? If so, when and where?
Next year NASP will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary. The planning is already underway! Mark your calendars now and please join us to celebrate all that makes specialty pharmacy SPECIAL September 19-22 at the gorgeous Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The Gaylord recently completed a $158 million expansion of their convention center and added 306 guest rooms. We cannot wait to welcome you as we reconnect with the world and each other, making new memories in new places while nostalgically remembering the evolution and growth of our industry and NASP and excitedly looking to the future.
NASP truly appreciates the outpouring of support we received from our members and meeting attendees. Messages like these made navigating this difficult time so much easier….
