Dear colleagues,

We regret to inform you that after careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 all over the world, ETC Local Organising Committee decided not to conduct ETC Forum 2020 in September, 2020.

We had been monitoring the coronavirus situation with the health, safety, and well-being of our guests in mind and arrived at this difficult decision after consulting with local authorities, speakers, exhibitors, and other forum delegates.

Taking into account the fact that ETC Forum has already become a traditional event, we are going to hold ETC Forum on 19-20 May, 2021. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the coronavirus situation will improve all over the world and we will be able to meet again at ETC 2021 in Odessa.

We will keep you updated and inform you as soon as ETC Local Organizing Committee have taken a final decision upon ETC 2021.
