As many of you will be aware the very difficult decision was made in mid March to postpone the 2020 IAVRPT symposium until August 2021. After closely monitoring the escalating global COVID-19 crisis and, at a time of uncertainty and worry, including the impact of global travel restrictions, it would have made it very difficult for us to hold this international symposium and we needed to put the safety of our attendees first. By taking this early decision before registration had opened we also managed to secure the best financial outcome for our intended attendees and our associations.

We are delighted to announce that the next IAVRPT symposium will be held on the 11-13th August 2021 and hosted by the University of Cambridge. To stay in touch and for further details please visit

We would like to say a huge thank you for your patience, support and understanding in what has been an unprecedented time for us all. We wish you well in the forthcoming months and look forward to welcoming you to Cambridge in 2021.
