EDA’s EDIST Conference & Exhibition Postponed Until June 2022

Due to the rapidly evolving situation in Ontario related to the emergence of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant, the EDA has made the decision to postpone the in-person EDIST Conference & Exhibition. The safety of our members, attendees, exhibitors, speakers and participants are of paramount importance to us.

The new date for EDIST will be June 1-3, 2022. Our intent is to hold an in-person EDIST in 2022, and this later date should allow additional runway for everyone to receive their vaccine booster and for case numbers to improve with the warmer seasonal weather.

EDIST 2022 will continue to be held at the same location – the Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites – and we look forward to providing the quality experience our members have come to expect from us then.

For Registrants and Exhibitors

If you plan to attend the rescheduled EDIST, no further action is required at this time. Your registration will be applied to the revised event date.

For Speakers

You should have received communication’s regarding the postponement of EDIST. Programming dates have changed to June 1-3, 2022, but your time slot and track will remain the same. Please contact Chantelle Bonham cbonham@eda-on.ca should you have any additional questions.

We thank you for your patience as we navigate the quickly changing situation in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and new Omicron variant.
