Yesterday it was a go for a live event in Omaha next month. Today BBI International announced that the 2020 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW) has been moved and will be virtual, due to COVID-19.
The event will now take place September 15-17, 2020 and will be a live online event only. The virtual FEW will include a general session, a live virtual expo hall, all listed track sessions, pre-conference events, the co-located Biodiesel Production Technology Summit and the ACE Annual Conference. Attendees will be able to access all presentations, networking events, the virtual expo hall and chat rooms.
“It’s been somewhat of a roller coaster this year and we recognized turning the FEW into a virtual event would be the safest and most cost-effective option for our attendees, and it would also eliminate any hovering uncertainty,” said Joe Bryan, CEO of BBI International. “The event will still contain a massive amount of content, networking opportunities and multiple ways to promote products and services, all from the safety of your office or home.”
The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) annual meeting was scheduled to take place August 26 as part of FEW. The organization has been invited to be part of the virtual FEW event and more information will be coming shortly.
