Surgical Conference & Expo in Anaheim Cancelled

The following is a statement AORN released regarding the 2020 AORN Surgical Conference & Expo in Anaheim:

“Over the past week, AORN has received many calls from nurses, exhibitors, and others regarding our Global Surgical Conference & Expo in Anaheim, novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and our intention to continue with the conference. Everyone, including AORN, wants a conference that is an outstanding experience and certainly one that assures a safe environment.

AORN takes very seriously its mission to keep healthcare workers and surgical patients safe. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we cannot promise a safe environment for nurses, exhibitors, vendors and staff. Therefore, consistent with our values of communication, quality, innovation and collaboration we regret to inform you, AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo 2020 is cancelled.

Unfortunately, postponement is not an option because of the event size and the limited number of cities able to accommodate us. Neither do we anticipate a near-term solution to contain the spread of COVID-19.

We understand you have many questions regarding your participation at AORN Expo 2020. We are in this together. We will be in contact with you in the coming days regarding any refunds and/or credits for future services.

We share your disappointment and sincerely thank you for your understanding of this very difficult decision.

AORN is reviewing processes and procedures for any refunds or credits. We appreciate your patience. If you have urgent questions before we are able to contact you, please email:”
