Annual Conference Logo


We at NAIRO want to express our concern for everyone impacted by coronavirus. Based on active and close monitoring of ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAIRO’s Annual Symposium, due to be held in person on April 13-15, 2021, was held virtuallyOur next in-person conference will take place March 29-31, 2022.

Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for everyone involved, while continuing to provide a valuable experience to our wonderful community. This was a difficult decision for our organization, but ultimately, we believe the safety and well-being of our members, presenters, exhibitors, attendees and staff must come first. Furthermore, we want to be respectful to anyone who would not have been able to attend the Symposium due to travel restrictions.
