APCDA has decided to postpone our Singapore conference by one year (until May 24-28, 2022).  All speakers and events planned for the Singapore conference will be moved to 2022. Instead, we have begun to plan a completely different virtual conference on May 24-28, 2021.  

The progress of the pandemic is outside of our control.  This decision frees us from uncertainty and allows us to focus on an event which is within our power to hold.  We hope this unique event will forever remind us of all that we have experienced during this period. We hope in May 2021 to be ready to celebrate the end of the pandemic. 

It will be a 3-day conference, with presentations for 3 hours each day and it will include offer keynote speakers, virtual exhibits, and meet-up lounges, plus a variety of other experiences. It will also include a variety of events before, after, and during the conference to enhance the experience.

Prior conferences have been planned around a location.  This Virtual Conference has no location. What will be its theme and imagery?  Can we offer virtual tours?  What events will be most meaningful for our members and friends?  What theme sums up the trials we have endured and the future we anticipate? How can we make this Virtual Conference a lasting remembrance of one good thing that resulted from the pandemic?  Click here for an early peek at our decisions.
