Attendee Info

Before You Go

We hope you’re ready for the Mile High City! Read on for attendee information and tips to help get you ready for four days learning, networking, and celebrating with thousands of oncology professionals!

Map Out Your Congress Schedule
With four educational tracks and sessions coded for specific ILNA categories, you have the opportunity to advance the education you need as an oncology profession. Select the sessions you would like to attend and you’ll receive email updates if any changes occur that will affect you.

Please note: Adding a session to your schedule does not guarantee you a spot in the room, and symposia events require separate registration. You’ll see a link to register for symposia events in their session description.

and events or stop by the ONS booth to ask questions, enter the daily raffle, and get your photo taken in
the photo booth.
