Conference Status

After due diligence, continued developing circumstances, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidelines regarding large gatherings, the 2020 International Hazardous Materials Response Teams Conference scheduled to take place June 3 – 7 at the Hilton Baltimore has been canceled, to be replaced with Virtual Hazmat, July 14 - 16, 2020.

Virtual Hazmat

The conference program planning committee and the IAFC Hazmat Committee have spent the last year planning for another successful Hazmat, and we are disappointed not to be able to bring everyone together in person. The importance and value of this conference have not been lost, and plans are currently in the works to create a virtual Hazmat event that will take place July 14 - 16. Registration for virtual Hazmat is set to open in early June. Information will continue to be shared here as it becomes available.

Virtual Hazmat will feature over 50 hours of OnDemand session content as well as daily live streaming. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other registered attendees, chat with speakers, and more. Details about Virtual Hazmat will be shared here as more information becomes available.

Attendee Registration

All currently registered attendees will have three options regarding their current registration funds:

  1. Register for the Virtual Hazmat event and receive a refund, minus the registration fee ($149) of the virtual event.
  2. Transfer your current registration to Hazmat 2021, scheduled for June 24 - 27, 2021 at the Hilton Baltimore.

Exhibitor and Sponsor Information

All currently registered exhibitors will have three options regarding their current exhibitor funds: 

  1. Showcase your services and products in the virtual environment and capture maximum global leads by exhibiting in the Hazmat Virtual Trade Show. Improve conversions by engaging with prospects with powerful chat tools, searchable categories, and sharing digital rich collateral. The Virtual Trade Show is an investment of $250, the rest of your investment will be refunded.
  2. Transfer your current registration to Hazmat 2021, scheduled for June 24 - 27, 2021 at the Hilton Baltimore.
  3. Receive a full refund. 

If you currently have invested in a sponsorship, our team will be reaching out to schedule a call with you to discuss the virtual options for your consideration. We have some exciting and compelling ways to transition your in-person presence to virtual using an interactive online event model.   

All exhibitors should email Tracy Blankenship with your preferred option.
