Symposium 2020 | August 24–26


Hemophilia Federation of America is pleased to announce new dates for our Symposium: Aug. 24-26, 2020!

We appreciate the community’s understanding and patience as we worked to find new dates for our Symposium.  The increased intensity and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic made our decision to postpone Symposium an easy one: our community’s health and wellbeing is paramount and we must do our part to help stop the spread of the virus.

We’re optimistic and hopeful about these changes, and implore you to join us in Baltimore in August for three days of face-to-face networking, education and fun! If you registered for Symposium before it was postponed, continue reading for answers to questions you likely have. If you aren’t registered, please visit our Symposium webpage to learn more and register! 

If you have questions, please contact us at



Symposium will take place on Aug. 24-26, 2020.


The host hotel and conference location has not changed: Symposium will be at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor, 401 West Pratt St, Baltimore, MD.


No action is needed with your registration. All current registrations are valid. If you’re not able to join us on the new dates due to scheduling conflicts, please contact


We recommend you do not cancel your flight but rather change/reschedule flight dates to avoid cancellation fees, depending on the airline’s policies on changes and cancellations. Some airlines are currently waiving these fees: their customer service team and websites will be your best resources.


The Hilton cancelled all rooms booked under our room block: there is no action needed on your part if you had a room booked. The Hilton charged a one night deposit for all booked rooms. Refunds began being processed on Monday 3/16: you should see a credit within 3-7 days on your credit card.

You will need to rebook a room for the new dates. A link to rebook your rooms, now negotiated at a lower room rate of $144, will be sent out as soon as we have it with the Hilton and will be posted on our website.


If you received a scholarship to come to Symposium in April, no changes were made. We’re thrilled to have you join us in August! There is no action you need to take regarding your registration or hotel room. As the date nears, someone from our team will contact you to discuss arrangements in the coming weeks.
