POSTPONED! WaterstofNet organises the conference ‘Joining Forces for a Sustainable Hydrogen Region’

Due to the changing measures for COVID 19 in Belgium and the Netherlands, we are unfortunately forced to postpone our hydrogen conference ‘Joining forces towards a sustainable hydrogen region’ which would take place next Monday (November 22th).

We were really looking forward to the conference with a great program and speakers and more than 200 participants (of which more than 80 percent preferred to attend in person). It should have been  a celebration of ‘5 years of Waterstof Industrie Cluster’, but the current situation makes it difficult to offer you a qualitatively and interactive conference.

We are convinced it’s best for both presenters and attendees to move the conference to Spring 2022.

We will communicate a new date as soon as the COVID situation sustainably improves and we get more perspective on a normalised situation.

We apologise for the inconvenience and are hoping for your understanding. Participants who already paid there their registration will be refunded.

We wish you all good health and hope to meet you at our WIC conference in the spring!
