The annual RAStech conference and tradeshow has been postponed for a year due to the continued disruption related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The RAStech Conference, originally scheduled for 16-17 November 2020, has now been moved to 3-4 November 2021. The event will remain in the same location – the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina.

“The continued call by government and public health officials around the world to practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings to reduce health risks associated with COVID-19 has influenced our decision to postpone the RAStech conference,” said Todd Humber, group publisher at Annex Business Media. “We look forward to safely welcoming professionals from across the world next year at this industry-leading event.”

In light of this, the RAS Investors’ Workshop – originally planned for 18 November 2020 – has been rescheduled for 5 November 2021.

Attendees, sponsors and exhibitors who have registered for RAStech 2020 will automatically be rolled over to the 2021 event. More than 75 per cent of the 2021 tradeshow booths are currently sold out.

The annual RAStech Conference and Tradeshow is hosted by Annex Business Media, publishers of RAStech magazine, Hatchery International, Aquaculture North America, in cooperation with Virginia Tech. It welcomed close to 400 attendees from 21 countries in Washington DC last year.
