We have been closely monitoring the escalating COVID-19 crisis and, at a time of uncertainty and worry, we regret to inform you that the IAVRPT 2020 symposium has been postponed until August 2021 when it will be hosted by the University of Cambridge. The growing public health crisis and the impact of the global travel restrictions will make it very difficult for us to hold this international symposium and we need to put the safety of our attendees first. These are unprecedented times and we hope that by taking this early decision before registration has opened we can secure the best financial outcome for our intended attendees and our associations.

Thank you for your patience, support and understanding during this extraordinary and challenging situation. We wish you well in the forthcoming months and look forward to welcoming you in Cambridge next year.

The IAVRPT 2020 Organising Committee
