Virtual Meeting 2022

In addition to the 2022 AABB Annual Meeting, which will take place Oct. 1-4 in Orlando, AABB is pleased to offer a subsequent virtual meeting for the blood and biotherapies community.

This year’s virtual event will take place Nov. 6-7 and will comprise highlights from the in-person Annual Meeting in October. Registration for AABB’s 2022 Virtual Meeting is now open.

The two-day virtual event is designed as a counterpart to the Annual Meeting and will feature some of its most popular education sessions, top scientific research, a Q&A session with the keynote speaker, a curated poster tour and additional highlights. Approximately 10 sessions will be presented live online and 20 will be available on-demand in the virtual platform.

The virtual event has been curated for members of the community who may not be able to attend AABB’s Annual Meeting in Orlando this year. Those participating in the virtual event will have the opportunity to earn a portion of the continuing education credits that will be available at the full in-person Annual Meeting. Those who attend this year’s virtual meeting will have access to the virtual platform for a month, during which time they can view the on-demand sessions and earn continuing education credits. In addition, virtual meeting registrants will have access to one live-streamed session each day of the 2022 AABB Annual Meeting in October.

Individuals registered for the 2022 AABB Annual Meeting in person in Orlando will also be granted access to the virtual event in November.
