IADLEST Conference 2021

IADLEST has selected Fort Worth, TX as the host city for our Annual Conference.


After careful consideration, the IADLEST Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Conference scheduled to take place on June 7-10, due to the spread of and health concerns associated with COVID-19. This event will now take place on May 23-26, 2021.

Things to know:

  1. Your current registration will automatically be applied to the rescheduled 2021 dates. If you are unable to attend the new dates, you may transfer your registration to another person by emailing us with the name and email address of who will be taking your place.
  2. If you are a speaker and your presentation has been accepted, please know that we plan on keeping the training tracks the same, albeit with possible agenda modifications within the rescheduled conference dates and revised contracts will be sent out in the next coming months.
  3. As a vendor, we are happy to reserve your spot at next year’s event. We will assume you want your reservation carried over to next year. If you don’t, please request a refund by responding to this email and we will gladly process your request.
  4. All room reservations previously made on the conference room block at the Omni Fort Worth will be cancelled automatically and confirmations will be emailed if an email address is on file with the hotel.

Thank you for your understanding in this complex situation. The health and safety of all our attendees, your families, our staff and volunteers, and the community at large are of utmost importance to us.
