Euro PM postponed until 2021 due to coronavirus

May 28, 2020

Euro PM2020 has been postponed and will take place in October 2021

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that the next edition of its Euro PM Congress & Exhibition, previously scheduled to take place in Lisbon, Portugal, in October 2020, will be postponed until October 17–20, 2021, due to the travel, safety and financial constraints posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19). The venue will remain the same. 

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.” 

The EPMA is said to be exploring the option of conducting Euro PM2020 as a virtual event, allowing for all the scheduled 300 + technical papers to be recorded and made available online. Full details are expected in the coming weeks.

It was 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.
