Health and Safety at TMS2021

TMS is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation related to COVID-19 and is taking steps to address concerns that may arise regarding attendance at professional events and meetings.

Monitoring the COVID-19 Situation

Thank you to those who have reached out with questions regarding planning for TMS2021. The health and safety of TMS members and meeting participants is the top priority of TMS Board of Directors and staff. Please be assured that the Society is committed to finding a safe pathway to deliver the symposia that have been organized. However, due to the volatility of the circumstances imposed on us due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may not know exactly what that will look like until closer to the meeting. We are considering all possibilities and ask for your patience and flexibility as the Society works towards minimizing risk for all involved while focusing on delivering a meaningful experience for participants. Please check this website regularly for updates and watch your e-mail for communications from TMS on this matter. Most of all, stay safe. 

Committed To Your Safety

TMS commits to follow guidelines outlined by federal, state, and local authorities to maintain appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our meeting participants, partners, and staff attending events. We also encourage all to protect themselves and others by following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meeting Venue: Orlando World Center Marriott

All technical presentations, committee meetings, exhibit activities, and networking events will be held at a single location in 2021: the Orlando World Center Marriott. This self-contained location will allow attendees who stay in the hotel to take full advantage of all TMS2021 activities without having to use public transportation. (Please note that the Orlando World Center Marriott is not part of the Walt Disney World resorts, but is a separate facility with its own amenities.) If you choose to stay at the Marriott, please book through the TMS2021 Housing website to take advantage of special attendee rates.

Learn more about enhanced sanitation practices being put into effect at this venue at Marriott’s Commitment to Clean website.
