MESSAGE FROM VISPA CHAIR BRIAN ALLEN
As the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic became evident in April 2020 we made the very difficult decision to postpone Vision2020 and optimistically planned to hold Vision2020+1 exactly a year later, in July 2021. Unfortunately, our optimism and hope to see an end to the pandemic and an opportunity for the Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation community to gather safely in Dublin in 2021 is not possible. Due to the ongoing uncertainty around travel and roll out of vaccination programmes in the coming months, we have had to make another difficult decision and further postpone Vision 2020. It will now take place 5 – 8 July 2022, when we hope to welcome you to Dublin for an in-person conference.
We are delighted that our Keynote Speakers Prof. Jane Farrar, Prof. Rupert Bourne and Prof. Pearse Keane will join us in 2022 and we are so appreciative of the support and patience you have shown throughout this uncertain and turbulent time.
We continue to aim to meet together in Dublin in 2022 providing us with the opportunity to re-connect with old friends and make new ones, while sharing research and practice.
In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
COUNTDOWN TO VISION 2020
