ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition

The premier event in malignant and non-malignant hematology will be all-virtual

Attend the world’s most comprehensive hematology event of the year for an invaluable educational experience and the opportunity to review thousands of scientific abstracts highlighting updates on the most critical topics in hematology.

The 62nd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition – originally to be held in San Diego, California – will be presented as an all-virtual event, given the continuing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please continue to hold December 5-8, 2020, on your calendar.

At this time, we have temporarily paused our members-only online registration. Registration for the virtual meeting will re-open on August 31 and will be available to both members and non-members.

Please note that the abstract submission deadline has been extended through Monday, August 10.
