POSTPONED: 12th Biennial International 22q11.2 Meeting

The leadership of the 22q11.2 Society has been carefully monitoring developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), including international travel restrictions and concerns over the safety of all attendees, and following careful deliberations has made the difficult and unprecedented decision to postpone the upcoming 12th Biennial International 22q11.2 meeting scheduled for June, 2020 at Le Meridien Lav Hotel in Split, Croatia until 2021.

We deeply regret any inconvenience caused by the cancellation and we share your disappointment, but we believe this is the most responsible course of action to protect the health and well-being of attendees, patients and their families, staff, and all those engaged in the conference. The current plan is to hold the conference in the same location in late June/early July of 2021.

Additional details regarding these exact dates will be forthcoming.

We thank you for your understanding and we wish you all continued good health.

Important: Refunds and Cancellations

Registration Fees

All meeting attendees will have refund options. Should you prefer to have us hold your registration until the 2021 meeting as it may be more difficult if paid institutionally we can do that. We will reach out to registered attendees separately to discuss. All refunds will be processed within 90 days.

We request that you do not contact the 22q11.2 Society or Trustees about your refund and wait for the email that will outline your refund options and the procedures.


Some major airlines are waiving change fees related to COVID-19 concerns. Use the email that you received from the conference organizer to show that your travel plans were disrupted due to COVID-19.


All attendees must cancel their own hotel reservations.

There will be no fee to cancel reservations if cancellation is made 72 hours prior to check-in. Cancellation policies may vary at other hotels/Airbnb's. We encourage you to cancel reservations as early as possible.
