No explanation is necessary when we say this year has brought about some changes that we are all ‘pivoting’ through. The annual Winter Conference and exhibition is moving forward with a few changes to prioritize safety while providing education and networking opportunities that are still being asked of us.
The traditional two day conference will be held with a condensed overall schedule, limited shared meals and one track of courses with designated exhibition hours. For the first time ever, a virtual registration will be available for anyone to attend the courses and receive credit. There are regulations and a strict policy in place if you plan to use this option but do not fear. This option will provide the ability to attend the courses from anywhere you have service and avoid the exposure of others. There will be a capacity limit on the amount of in-person attendees however, the limit is on the high end of what we naturally experience each year in attendance.
We hope to see you there whether in-person or online.

The Fredericksburg Expo and Conference (FECC) provides ample room for any distancing requirements as we continue to pivot through safe practices and continue to gather. This year will be different as we condense our program down to one track of courses and a limited exhibit hall. Meals will be held on your own with the exception of appetizers and a cash bar during the Exhibit Hall opening after class on Wednesday. There will also be a full country breakfast buffet Thursday morning to warm your bellies while you meet and greet with exhibitors once again.
With loads of outdoor space, we will be able to hold heavy equipment in the parking lot and extend the exhibits out into the fresh crisp air. All outdoor exhibits must be registered as well.
FECC is located conveniently off of I-95 in Celebrate Virginia near downtown Fredericksburg.
Reserve your stay direct with one of the three following Hilton Hotels that are adjacent to the convention center. Mention the ‘VWWA’ block code to receive the discounts. The hotels are within walking distance however, there is ample parking at the FECC.
