The European Petrochemical Association (EPCA; Brussels, Belgium) says that, “as a result of the severe global disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the EPCA board has unanimously decided to cancel the 54th EPCA annual meeting, which had been due to take place in Budapest, Hungary, on 4-7 October 2020.

EPCA says it has decided instead to hold the event in a “virtual” format on the same dates.

“Even in the event that the various pandemic lockdown measures were to be lifted, the potential participation of several thousand individuals would create an undue risk to delegates, speakers, staff members, and external suppliers as well as to the citizens of Budapest,” EPCA says.

The virtual event will have a revised program, details of which will be disclosed before the summer, EPCA says.
