World Biogas Expo 2020 postponed until October 7-8
In the UK, the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA), the organisers of the World Biogas Expo and the World Biogas Summit 2020 originally slated to take place in July, have announced the event has been rescheduled to take place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 7-8, 2020.
The move to 7-8 October means that The World Biogas Expo 2020, themed ‘There’s no Net Zero without Biogas’, and The World Biogas Summit will now take place one month prior to the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow – presenting an opportunity to demonstrate to world leaders that the industry offers a big part of the solution for climate change and, with their support, how the sector can deliver a 12 percent cut in global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030.
We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and related WHO and government guidelines. With responsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors and after consulting with our Advisory Board and key industry stakeholders, ADBA and WBA have decided to postpone the World Biogas Expo 2020. Given the spread of the virus and containment measures now being taken worldwide, both visitor and exhibitor attendance would be affected given our evolution into a global event. We are certain that our sponsors, exhibitors and visitors will have a more positive and constructive experience at The World Biogas Expo 2020 later in the year once the impact of Covid 19 has calmed, the organisers said in a statement.
