The 2020 Southern States Symposium & Expo Has Been Cancelled
The 2020 Southern States Symposium & Expo has been cancelled due to risks presented by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This is the first time the Symposium & Expo has been cancelled. The Southern States Symposium & Expo is the highlight of our annual offerings and the largest of our live meetings, bringing together hundreds of dental laboratory professionals and service providers from across the nation. Thus, the decision to cancel was not taken lightly or without careful consideration and consultation.

The FDLA Board of Directors and staff monitored the COVID-19 situation closely leading up to the cancellation. FDLA's priority in making this decision is the health, safety, and well-being of our members, our staff, our exhibitors, sponsors and speakers. At this time, there are no plans to postpone or reschedule the Symposium & Expo in 2020, due to the uncertainty we are all facing at the moment and the inability to set an accurate timeline. The 2021 Symposium & Expo is planned for May 6 - 8, 2021 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld.

Exhibit, Sponsorship and Advertising fees can also be applied to the 2021 Symposium & Expo. Our exhibit manager will be in contact regarding the options available for securing your company's exhibit, sponsorship and advertising location for the 2021 Symposium & Expo.

If you or your company is currently registered as an exhibitor, sponsor or advertiser, a separate notice will follow within the next few days with directions on how to roll over your registration for the 2021 Symposium & Expo or request a refund. All refunds should be requested by April 30, 2020. Past April 30, 2020, we will take in good faith that you would like to extend your payment to cover your fees or deposits at the 2021 Symposium & Expo.
