Euro PM2020 Virtual Congress to be held in light of coronavirus

June 1, 2020

The next physical edition of the Euro PM Congress & Exhibition will be held in Lisbon in 2021, while a virtual event will be held this year to enable the presentation of all papers originally on the programme for Euro PM2020

Following the recent announcement by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) that the next Euro PM Congress & Exhibition has been postponed until October 17–20, 2021, it has confirmed that a Virtual Congress will be held in place of the 2020 event.

In an official statement sent via email, the organisers wrote, “In recent weeks, we have all been following the uncertainty and spread of the COVID-19 virus worldwide. The pandemic impacts all business in different ways; and given the difficulties participants may have travelling to Lisbon, as well as the high safety and financial constraints of running a live meeting in 2020, the EPMA Board has decided to postpone the live Euro PM Congress & Exhibition event in Lisbon until 17-20 October 2021.” 

This new event will be held online as a webinar from October 5–7, 2020. The Virtual Congress is expected to allow all 300+ technical papers to be presented during a live webinar.

It has also been confirmed that all exhibitors are entitled to a full refund of their reservation costs. Alternatively, exhibitors may also choose to retain current exhibition stand or sponsorship reservation for use at Euro PM2021, to put deposits toward EPMA membership or seminar fees for 2020/21, or to donate deposits to the EPMA.
