Frequently Asked Questions Regarding ACCESSE20

CESSE is fully committed to ensuring the safety of our ACCESSE20 conference attendees, partners, and presenters. After closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), the CESSE Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person conference. 

Will the conference be rescheduled or postponed?

No, the in-person ACCESSE20 Conference has just been moved to a virtual conference format. We are offering education sessions, keynote addresses, and networking events during the same dates, July 22-23. We will be providing more details in the upcoming weeks.
The CESSE Business Meeting and additional events including receptions, pre-conference sessions, committee meetings, and Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings are postponed. The dates and times for future CESSE Board, Committee, and SIG meetings are yet to be determined.


Will CESSE provide any sessions virtually?

Yes, ACCESSE20 will deliver content originally meant for the in-person event, along with some new relevant topics. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.

Will attendees and exhibitors be refunded for hotel expenses?

If you booked a hotel room at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance and were part of the CESSE room block, they have automatically canceled your room reservation. We encourage you to still contact the venue to be sure you aren't accidentally charged.
