Premier Educational Event for the Blood Industry

Registration is now open!

Join us for three days of exceptional speakers and hear what 2022 holds for the blood industry.

Plan to join us for the 60th ABC Annual Meeting and 25th Awards of Excellence March 7-9, 2022, at the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City in Arlington, VA. The hotel block is now open to secure your room.

This year’s meeting will be held in-person while the Advocacy Day will be held virtually the following week given continued visitor restrictions on Capitol Hill. This will allow each blood center to bring together multiple colleagues to connect with their members of Congress and their staff. More information will be provided as we confirm final details.

Program Overview

Located right outside the heart of Washington, DC, the Annual Meeting will bring together blood center executives and national leaders to discuss advocacy and regulatory updates, the latest in science, medicine, and technical affairs, and hot topics facing the industry. In addition, we are excited that the final day of this year’s meeting will feature two in-depth training workshops focused on building tangible advocacy skills that can immediately benefit your center.

  • Blood center executive and senior management
  • Medical Directors and technical staff
  • Quality and regulatory individuals, and staff involved in advocacy
  • Next generation of blood center leaders who are interested in helping to shape the future of the industry!
