Welcome to the AWP 2021 First Virtual Annual Conference!


This is the first year that we will be hosting a virtual conference, and are excited that you have chosen to join us. We hope that you will find meaningful ways to connect with others, in ways that are familiar and some that are new. As with any new endeavors, we anticipate some growing pains, but have been working diligently to make the new virtual experience a rich and diverse experience. 


What are some of the unanticipated benefits of a virtual conference?

Given that many of our presentations will be pre-recorded you will be able access a variety of sessions and materials during and after the conference has ended. 

  • Continue interacting with our exhibitors several weeks after the conclusion of the conference.

  • Utilize the WHOVA app to send messages to colleagues and to make new connections during and after the conference.

  • Re-visit sessions that may be occurring concurrently. You can go back and view pre-recorded sessions that you may have otherwise missed. 

  • Manage your time with flexibility and attend sessions at your pace, and over a period of time that works for you. 

While we wish we could see everyone in person, we are hopeful about offering greater flexibility during the conference experience.
