Global Offshore Wind Summit - Taiwan postponed to 12-13 October 2020
The Global Offshore Wind Summit Taiwan 2020 has been postponed until 12-13 October 2020 and will be held at the Hua Nan Financial Holdings Conference Centre in Taipei.
The decision to postpone the event, originally scheduled for 21-23 April, has been made by the event organisers, the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), in response to health concerns arising from the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Considering health and safety concerns as well as travel restrictions placed on international participants, we believe it is in the best interest of all participants to postpone the event until the autumn when the virus will likely be under control. The organisers’ decision has the full support of the supporting organisers, including Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).
While the date has changed, the global prominence and significance of the Global Offshore Wind Summit - Taiwan 2020 has not. In fact, we anticipate that holding the event later in the year has the advantage of giving valuable additional insights and perspectives on the experience as we can consider the progress of another 6-7 months of the ongoing roll-out of offshore wind farms in Taiwan. The event programme and ambition will remain the same with the new dates, featuring distinguished speakers and panellists from Europe, the Asia Pacific region and Taiwan, including global CEOs, government ministers and city mayors to discuss what’s next for Taiwan’s offshore wind industry.
If you have already purchased a ticket for the event already, it will remain valid for the new dates.
