To support the neurosurgery community in these unprecedented times, the CNS is offering complimentary online education. Learn more.

  • To secure space for a meeting or social function at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel during the 2020 CNS Annual Meeting, please complete a "Function Space Request" form, found at the bottom of this page.

    Please complete a separate request for each function. This form must be completed in its entirety so that we can assign you the appropriately sized meeting space. To help you in planning your event, a list of available days and times for functions are noted below.

    The deadline to request function space is Friday, July 17, 2020. Requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Any requests received after the deadline may not be accepted due to limited space availability.

    Function space confirmations will be sent in late July.

    For questions about requesting function space for an event at the 2020 CNS Annual Meeting, please contact Karen Garrett at

We would like to be prepared to answer any attendee questions and direct them to the appropriate venue.

    We look forward to receiving your request. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us toll free at 877-517-1CNS (877-517-1267).
