The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) was scheduled to be held in New York City, March 12–15, 2020, and had the largest conference registration in the history of ACMT’s ASM. In the week prior to the conference, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City and the USA was becoming apparent. On the first day of the conference, organizers canceled the live portion of the meeting and converted the conference into an entirely virtual meeting. We discuss the challenges of holding a virtual conference, future directions for online meetings, and why our conference was ultimately successful.
