ADUS 2020

Postponement Notice of the AccessData User Summit

After extensive internal deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 AccessData User Summit, which had been scheduled for April 26 - 29 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

On March 1st, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a public health emergency after two residents in separate Florida counties tested positive for COVID-19, the coronavirus that has now spread around the globe. With so much uncertainty surrounding the containment of the virus, as well as already imposed travel restrictions on many attendees, we felt it was prudent to postpone this year's event.  

We are monitoring the situation closely and it is our intention to reschedule the event when it is responsible to do so. We will keep everyone updated when we have additional details to share.

In the meantime, our staff will pro-actively reach out to everyone who registered for ADUS to discuss any appropriate refunds, or you may email us directly at  We will handle the cancellation of all hotel reservations for registered guests (without penalty to you). Finally, we encourage attendees to contact their airlines as soon as possible to request the waiver of any cancellation fees for air travel, due to the unforeseen public health emergency declaration by Gov. DeSantis.

We apologize for the inconvenience but hope you will understand the precautionary motivation behind our decision. Thank you for your support of AccessData and we hope to see you at our next User Summit.


The 2020 ADX User Summit will be held at the W Hotel Ft. Lauderdale from April 26 – 29, 2020. The W is only 15 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport (MIA), providing options to make travel easier and more efficient for all travelers.

The W is a beachfront hotel that sits at the epicenter of all that’s vibrant in the Venice of America, with world-class shopping, award-winning dining and buzzworthy attractions just steps away. Take in the sights from your stylish, pet-friendly hotel room or suite, which offers unparalleled Atlantic Ocean views.

Soak up the sun at the oceanfront WET East pool (also the location for our opening reception!), dine beachside at James Beard award-winning restaurateur Stephen Starr’s Steak 954 (also enjoy it for ADX lunches!) and Mexican restaurant El Vez, with a lively patio, or live it up the “Living Room.” Break a sweat at FIT, the 24-hour gym, or on the beach at sunrise yoga and beach boot camp. Detox, retox and repeat at the new AWAY Spa.

Explore everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer just moments away from this beachfront resort. If you choose to extend your stay, you can do so at the low conference price for up to three days before or after the Summit (subject to availability). Be sure to only book your hotel through our dedicated ADX 2020 hotel registration site.
