POSTPONED: IWEA Annual Spring Conference 2020

19th March 2020

The Irish Wind Energy Association has decided to postpone our Spring Conference scheduled for Thursday and Friday of next week (19-20 March, in Dublin).

Over the last few days concerns have escalated around the public health impact of the COVID-19 virus. New cases are identified every day and, tragically, yesterday the first fatality from the virus in Ireland was reported. 

Postponing the conference was not a decision that was taken lightly as it is one of the most important events we organise every year. 

Peter Lynch, Chairperson of the Irish Wind Energy Association, said: “The IWEA Council has unanimously agreed to support the IWEA executive team’s recommendation that we must do everything we can to prevent the spread of the virus and that postponing the Spring conference is the correct course of action given the unprecedented circumstances. 

“It is our plan to reschedule the Spring Conference for later in the year.  IWEA staff are working closely with the hotel and other suppliers to rearrange a new date for the event which will most likely be in the Autumn and may take the form of a bigger Autumn event in a Dublin venue."

All delegates and exhibitors who have already paid for their tickets or exhibition space can choose to transfer that payment to the rescheduled conference.
