After much thought and consideration, the leadership team of the TEES Turbomachinery Laboratory has decided to transition the face-to-face Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium event to a virtual setting.
All short courses and technical sessions, as well as the exhibition, will be held online. The symposium dates will continue to be 23-25 February, with short courses on 22 February, 2021.
Due to the many unknowns related to the ongoing global pandemic, COVID-19, the leadership team at the Turbomachinery Laboratory—host of ATPS— along with support of ATPS platinum sponsor PETRONAS, gold sponsor Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) and Mitsubishi Power Ltd. (MPL), and major supporter Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau, determined that a virtual event is the best course of action.
“At the Turbo Lab, the health and safety of our delegates and exhibitors is of the upmost importance,” said Dag Calafell, Chair of ATPS. “We look forward to being able to offer the same world-class educational forum and exhibition while working to slow the spread of COVID-19.”
Looking toward the future, the Turbo Lab plans to host a face-to-face symposium in 2022 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the original location of ATPS 2020. More information on this event is forthcoming.
We want to thank all of our advisors, authors, partnering companies, exhibitors, and participants for their patience and loyalty to the Turbo Lab and our associated events. The Turbo Lab looks forward to seeing you online 22-25 February, 2021.
