    After monitoring the pandemic and its effects on mass gatherings and events in the past few months, the AST Board of Directors has voted to move AST’s 2021 Surgical Technology Conference to July 21-23, 2021. By doing so, it is our hope that pushing back the event dates will allow for the following:

    • for more individuals to receive the vaccine;
    • to give states the ability to further develop their re-opening plans;
    • and most importantly, for AST to plan the safest in-person event possible in accordance with local and national health and safety protocols.

    AST will be working closely with the staff at Caesar’s Palace to ensure that our event is being prepared in compliance with these safety measures. In the coming weeks, we will be releasing more details on our plans to keep attendees safe.
