IrDEA Annual Conference 2020 - POSTPONED

Future date to be confirmed

The Irish District Energy Association's National Conference due to take place in April 2020 has been postponed to later on this year due to Covid-19.

Acting in accordance with the Government announcement that indoor gatherings of more than 100 people are not permitted, we have decided to postpone the Irish District Energy Association National Conference (originally scheduled for Thursday 30 April 2020) until later in the year.

We are naturally disappointed but IrDEA takes the health and well-being of conference attendees, speakers and staff very seriously. We look forward to hosting a successful conference later this year.
