IDEA2021 Date Change

IDEA 2021 Date Change

IDEA is pleased to announce that we are shifting the dates of the IDEA 2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show to September 27-29, 2021.

IDEA2021 was originally planned for June 14-17, 2021 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX. IDEA has negotiated for the later dates with the Convention Center and host hotels with the hope that COVID-19 pandemic risks will have declined as vaccinations increase over spring and summer and that health restrictions have abated, enabling more (and safer) travel.

Registration and program details will be available in early Spring. Please stay tuned for updates.
