FOWT 2020 - Covid-19

Format of the event following the Covid-19 pandemic

Dear friends of Floating Offshore Wind,
 
First of all we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and fit. The covid-19 pandemic had a huge impact on the economies worldwide and we are all deeply involved to prepare and launch the recovery measures, especially through a strong and ambitious Green Deal.
 
We are very delighted to confirm you that FOWT 2020 will be physically held on 7-8 September 2020 at the Palais du Pharo of Marseille with the highest health requirements and will also be 100% accessible online live or in replay mode worldwide for registered participants who could unfortunately not join us on the sunny Mediterranean coast.
 
Because the health and safety of our visitors and staff is our number one priority: we have been closely monitoring the situation and the notices issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as the French Government. The situation in France is now considered under control and satisfactory.
Everything will be done so that the global Community of the Floating offshore wind industry can get together on 7 and 8th of September, with the same energy and to make the 2020 edition a true success. The organizers will follow all the health recommendations of the French Governement. We wanted to thank again our sponsors, partners, speakers and participants for their support and trust.
 
The Organization Committee closely works with all the stakeholders to ensure we deliver the highest quality and true value of this world-leading event. The initial format of the event (plenary sessions, BtoB meetings and academic sessions) has been adapted to facilitate the participation of everyone in September: this is why the academic sessions initially planned on 9th of September will be 100% digitalized and will not be held physically.
 
We fully understand and appreciate the level of planning that is required to participate in an event like ours, and would like to thank you all, sponsors, partners, suppliers and visitors for your continued support and patience during this challenging time.
We encourage you to register online as soon as possible to allow us to prepare and design the best possible organization.
 
You will find all the updated information on our website. 
 
If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact the FOWT organization team. We hope to gather you numerous on September!
 
Best regards
 
The FOWT 2020’s Organization Committee
