Unfortunately, as with many events scheduled for the first half of 2021, we've had to make the difficult decision to postpone the live PowerChem 2021 conference until May 2022 because of uncertainty with border closures and COVID-19 outbreaks. We regret this inconvenience, but all is not lost for experiencing PowerChem in 2021 - you can access featured parts of the conference with our new online Summit format. In place of the in-person conference we will be running a shorter online Summit - two afternoons (10th & 12th May) with 3 Keynote speakers, 7 technical papers, Q&A sessions, a community forum, and opportunities to connect with our industry exhibitors. All technical papers will be pre-recorded and available for people to watch anytime on-demand in the week prior, or at the designated time in the program. Each presentation will be followed by a live online Q&A session. There are multiple scheduled breaks for you to connect with our industry exhibitors in separate virtual rooms, and to manager your 'zoom fatigue'. The program also contains a community discussion session so everyone can have their say, including on the future of the PowerChem live conference in 2022.

The primary aim of the conference is to provide up-to-date professional development for those working in the industry globally as well as those associated with it. This conference is composed of a diverse range of key speakers, exhibitors, and three days of lectures. The format of the conference allows close interaction between speakers, presenters, exhibitors and delegates, with a number of training courses also available.
