The 2020 Upstate New York Zoo and Aquarium Conference has been cancelled.

Needless to say, we have been closely watching the COVID-19 developments. For the health and safety of all, we have made the decision to postpone the Upstate NY Zoo and Aquarium Conference. We are very disappointed about delaying, and apologize for any inconvenience. All tickets will be refunded directly to the card used during the purchase.

When this conference has been rescheduled, we will reach out to you with the new date so you may register again. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Thank you for your understanding.

Meet and collaborate with Zoo and Aquarium peers from our region! Learn and discuss trends and topics in:

  • Animal care
  • Animal welfare
  • Development
  • Marketing & PR
  • Life support
  • Veterinary care

For those coming into town the night before, plan to join us for networking and drinks at a pre-conference happy hour on March 25. For those staying the night of the conference, join us for networking and drinks that night at a local hangout. Details for both to follow.

The Conference will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
