Based on the feedback received via the Doodle Poll that was sent to all members recently, and after a careful review of the current COVID-19 pandemic status, as well as the vaccination roll-out projections, the Board of Directors has decided, regrettably, to postpone IPLOCA’s Annual Convention that was scheduled to take place from 13 to 17 September 2021 at the Hilton Prague hotel, Czech Republic.
It has been a very difficult decision, however, the Board of Directors is determined to prioritise and maintain the exceptional level of event that our delegates have come to expect from our Annual Conventions.
The new dates for the Prague Convention are now confirmed for 19 to 23 September 2022.
The Board of Directors and the Secretariat continue to work together to minimise the impact that the prolonged pandemic is having on the Association. We would like to thank all those members who have contributed during the past year by participating in the online Webinars, Novel Construction Sessions, HSE Workshops and the Annual General Meeting in Geneva, as well as those companies that have provided valuable sponsorship for Awards, Scholarships and Workshops.
We look forward to meeting once again all our members in person at the 2022 Convention.
