News & Updates

New Dates for PAG XXIX

pagxxixPAG XXIX, as scheduled for January 2021 in San Diego at the newly renovated Town & Country Hotel, is officially postponed until March 27-31, 2021.

We are prepared to have a meeting with limited attendance; provided an approved vaccine is expected available by December 2020, travel restrictions have been removed, and all national and local regulations regarding COVID-19 can be met.

Assuming the circumstances allow us to proceed in March, we will, in conjunction with the hotel management, deploy all available measures necessary to provide a healthy and safe environment for everyone in attendance. Online registration will open in November 2020.

In the case that a vaccine will not become available by December 2020, we will most likely need to cancel the 2021 meeting and plan for PAG to resume it's annual cycle in January 2022. If a cancellation of PAG for 2021 is to occur, an announcement will be made in mid-November 2020.

We would like to thank everyone in the worldwide PAG community for their longtime support and enthusiasm for what has become the largest agricultural genomics meeting in the world. We greatly appreciate your understanding as we try to navigate these unprecedented times together.

International Attendees
PAG will continue to welcome International Visitors who are eligible to attend, as per international travel, border, and quarantine restrictions. Please check with the U.S. Department of State Website and your local consulate or embassy for the most current information, and apply for a visa as early as possible. The requirement for pre-registration before requesting Letter of Invitation Request will be waived for 2021.

At this time we intend to move forward with PAG Asia 2021 in Shenzhen, China – June 9-11, 2021. More information can be found on the PAG ASIA 2021 website.
