Asset Performance 4.0 rescheduled due to COVID-19

In the context of the international outbreak and spread of COVID-19, BEMAS is closely following developments, taking into account the advice and recommendations of the World Health Organisation and local authorities. The main priority of BEMAS is the welfare, health and safety of workers, visitors, speakers and exhibitors. 

Taking into account the uncertainty of the risk of the further spread of COVID-19 in the coming months, the Board of BEMAS has unanimously decided to reschedule the Asset Performance 4.0 conference and exhibition. The event will no longer take place in June in Antwerp, but will take place on 15, 16 and 17 September 2020. Due to the Antwerp conference hall being fully booked in autumn, we decided to move the venue to the International Conference Center in Ghent Belgium, approx. 50 km from Antwerp.

Ghent is home to a major university and is a breeding ground for technology start-ups. The 60 kilometres long cross-border North Sea Port is home to many industrial companies including ArcelorMittal, Cargill and Volvo Cars. The ICC is easily accessible by car and public transport and is easily accessible by train from the international airport Brussels Airport.

Strengthened by the results of our survey with a wide range of potential participants, we feel confident that this decision will have a positive impact on the number of participants. We will use the additional time to even better prepare all presentations and workshops in order to make sure participants will get the best possible learning experience at Asset Performance 4.0.
