ICALEO 2021 transitioning to a virtual platform

Due to the continued uncertainty in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the ongoing impact on international travel, LIA has decided to transition ICALEO 2021 to a fully virtual conference experience this October. The health and safety of our members, speakers, attendees, and staff is of paramount importance and we feel this is the safest path forward.
