IDW 2020 IS GOING VIRTUAL ON 8-10 SEPTEMBER
Due to the continuing uncertainty concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided after careful consideration to convert our upcoming edition of the International Downstream Week IDW 2020 to a fully virtual conference & exhibition held on 8-10 September! All existing conference registrations will be automatically transferred to the new conference format and credit notes with the difference will be issued.

INTERNATIONAL DOWNSTREAM WEEK – IDW VIRTUAL 2020
IDW 2020 will be a 3-day virtual event, held on 8–10 September 2020, featuring a variety of presentations, live panel discussions, 1-2-1 networking, learning opportunities & a virtual exhibition. The virtual event will offer participants: scheduling flexibility, attractive participation fees, and with the added bonus of significantly reducing the carbon footprint.
Whilst nothing can fully compare with in-person conferences, we firmly believe that the future of events will tend to incorporate virtual modules as part of a larger hybrid event strategy - one which combines both in-person and digital experiences.
To start off this new era we are happy to launch IDW Virtual 2020 whilst at the same time hoping to be able to welcome you in person at the future hybrid format of IDW 2021 which will be held next May 2021 in Dubrovnik and co-hosted by INA.
More information on all the features of our virtual conference will be made available soon!
Join us on this new & exciting journey!
