Why VASA 2022?

Outstanding Scientific Sessions: Leading lecturers in our field will be invited to present. Video sessions on complex case management will also be featured. Registered company representatives are invited to attend all of the Scientific Sessions and meeting events as part of company support of the Symposium.

Increased Face-Time with Attendees: Attendees have the opportunity to visit exhibits during prime exhibit hours, including receptions on the evenings of Thursday, June 9 and Friday, June 10, as well as each morning and throughout the day. The program has been designed to transition to breaks and other planned events in the exhibit hall. The Program Committee is keenly aware of the importance of “face-time” with attendees and faculty in the exhibit area, and has mandated that all scheduled break times be strictly maintained and not allowed to be shortened due to session over-runs.
