Kidney Week 2020 Reimagined: A Fully Digital Meeting

What's New in 2020

ASN has been honored to host the world's premier meeting in nephrology for 50+ years. While we have all enjoyed the various sites at which past annual meetings have taken place, Kidney Week has not succeeded because of a specific location.

This year's meeting is offered in a fully online format with educational presentations delivered live-streamed, simulive, and on-demand; ePosters; digital exhibit hall; virtual networking opportunities; and more. Annual Meeting content will launch October 22, recorded, and available in the meeting website through December 4.

Networking and Interactive Opportunities

ASN will offer unique opportunities to network with other participants and exhibitors at Kidney Week 2020 Reimagined through Attendee Connect. Attendee Connect matches you with other participants based on your registration information and presents opportunities to chat, email, and have video meetings.

Kidney Week will also have a digital photo booth, wellness activities, an EXPLORE: Scavenger Hunt, fun ways to experience Denver and San Diego virtually, and the Kidney Week forum, which will allow participants to interact in a chat forum. All sessions have a chat/discussion board and allows participants to interact with faculty and one another.
