We hope you are well and healthy in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the public health crisis has turned all of our lives upside down, the retina community remains strong and united.
Due to the projected ongoing effects of the pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s meeting originally scheduled March 26-28, 2020 in Miami. Safety of our members, patients, and families are of the highest priority.
If you booked a hotel room at the Fontainebleau, your reservation will be cancelled by the hotel, if it hasn’t been cancelled already, and the deposit will be refunded by March 30. The meeting registration will be refunded in full by April 3. You will receive an email with a confirmation once it is processed.
The next VBS annual meeting will be held April 8-10, 2021 at ARIA, in Las Vegas.
