Join us at the AVIR 2020 Annual Meeting
Seattle, WA 

The AVIR Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity to experience the best medical education in patient care, interventional research, techniques, and the challenges facing IR medicine today. In Seattle you will have the opportunity to interact and network with a broad constituency of IR technologists, nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals.

We provide opportunities to gain new insight into innovations in research, policies, techniques, and day-to-day practice -- All while taking in the breathtaking views in the beautiful picturesque city of Seattle.  CEU's available to those who have registered for the AVIR meeting, will be offered on Sunday, March 29th through Wednesday, April 1st.


Who should attend?

AVIR 2020 is designed to meet the educational needs of practicing imaging professionals specializing in interventional radiology. This meeting is the only venue offering education designed specifically for the IR professional.

What can I expect?

The ability to obtain at least 24 CEU's!!  Every session held by the AVIR will offer credit.  We are working to accredit a select number of sessions held at SIR as well.  AVIR will be holding all of their sessions at the Sheraton Grand Seattle. It has a great price per night and we highly recommend booking there early.

Rate Integrity

Throughout the booking process, AVIR/SIR monitors the hotel rates in Seattle. You can rest assured that we are working hard to get the best rates for you!

Hotel Liaisons

AVIR has a team of professionals who monitors our hotel block while onsite at the meeting and makes sure your stay in Seattle is the best it can be. 

Walk/Relocation Policy

Just like airlines, hotels sometimes oversell the amount of rooms they have available on a given night. As an AVIR participant booked within the official block, you are protected if this situation arises.

International Group Registration and Housing

International group coordinators may submit a request for housing packages. Discounted registration rates are also available. Please click here to the SIR housing bureau website for details. Please note: Experient manages the SIR housing bureau and is our only approved partner for hotel reservations.
