The 37th International Seating Symposium is moving to January 31 – February 2, 2022. If you’re planning to attend, please note the new date and revise your plans accordingly.

The COVID-19 Delta variant is causing much concern for large in-person gatherings, challenging people’s work/family life, and making it difficult for many to travel. With safety of the attendees and organizers a top priority, the decision was made to change the date.

With aggressive vaccination programs being implemented in many countries, it is hopeful that moving to a later date will maximize the number of attendees, presenters, and exhibitors who are able to safely participate in-person. As the details surrounding the new dates become more finalized, organizers will keep in touch with all event participants.
