PREP 2020 COVID-19 Statement

Mar 18 2020 Read 679 Times

Because of concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the recent US CDC guidance that recommends cancelling such meetings, we regret to announce the cancellation of PREP2020. We look forward to seeing you at PREP2021 to be held at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore, MD, USA, on June 6-10, 2021.

PREP2021 will feature an expanded program from Sunday through Thursday. Papers accepted for PREP2020 will be automatically accepted for PREP2021 and the additional day will provide room for additional presentations, posters, workshops, extended exhibit hours, and more networking opportunities. Details about abstract submission will be provided later. With your support, we are confident that PREP2021 will be the best ever in this 33-year old symposium series. More than ever, perhaps, there is a clear need for the science and technology that is required to more rapidly develop and produce safe and effective therapeutic drugs and vaccines. We believe that the PREP Symposium plays an important role in this pursuit by bringing together the very best academic and industrial scientists and engineers and the very best technology suppliers in the field of preparative and process chromatography. We are confident that we will continue to do our part and lead in the solution of practical separation problems in this area.

Registration fees – Registration fees that have already been paid will be either refunded or applied to PREP2021. The latter option ensures that your registration fees will remain the same.

Hotel reservations – Please, cancel your hotel reservations as soon as possible. Rooms booked at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor under the conference block can be cancelled without penalty up to 3:00 PM, 48 hours prior to scheduled arrival.

Presenters – Presenters of papers accepted for PREP2020, which are automatically accepted for PREP2021, will be asked to confirm their intention to present at PREP2021 and to prepare updated presentations. There will be room for many additional papers and a new call for abstracts will be made during the coming months.

Exhibitors – Exhibitor fees that have already been paid will be either refunded or applied to PREP2021. The latter option ensures that your exhibitor fee and assigned booth and vendor workshop slot will remain the same.

Sponsors – Many of our generous sponsors have already agreed to apply their PREP2020 funding to PREP2021. This will enable us to continue to provide a meeting of unsurpassed quality with the broadest possible international participation.
