Bode Technology’s Annual Forensic DNA Conference


Join Bode Technology in Tampa Bay Nov. 3-6, 2020 for the 
19th Annual Forensic DNA Conference - Bode 2020


In light of the most recent information related to the evolving COVID-19 situation, growing community concerns, and concerns for the health and well being of all, we have made the decision to reschedule the dates for Bode 2020 to November 3-6,2020. 

Hotel/ Venue

The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay will remain the conference hotel.  If you currently have reservations, the Grand Hyatt will be sending you cancellation emails.  You will need to re-book your reservation if you plan to join us in November. We will have the new reservation date links posted on as soon as we receive them.  If you have reservations at The Westin all reservations have been cancelled as well.

As a reminder, reservations are ultimately the responsibility of each attendee, so we do encourage everybody to verify that their reservation has been cancelled.

We understand the logistical inconveniences that may arise as a result of this decision and regret the disruption, but are making these decisions with the safety of our attendees in mind.


If you wish to keep your registration no action is required from you at this time.  We will notify you with further registration information.

If you would like a refund, or to cancel your registration, please email

Sponsors/ Speakers

We will be in touch directly to address any questions.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
