About the event

Online presentations, live panels and digital networking

Having consulted within the industry, we have concluded that the best option for Brownfield Summit 2020 in the light of the Covid-19 outbreak is to shift the format into the virtual world, creating an opportunity for a huge virtual conference comprising speaker presentations and panel discussions. ​

Virtual panel discussions, Q&A with audience

This virtual conference is designed for a broad range of brownfield professionals – including business leaders and early career professionals. If you are involved in investigating or monitoring contaminated land, ground gas or groundwater, or developing remedial strategies, come together and listen to our live online presentations and network through panel discussions and Q&A sessions. Get in touch if you want to join one of the virtual panels.

Training opportunities during Covid-19 lockdown

If you have staff on furlough, remember that HMRC rules permit them to undertake training activities while not otherwise working for your company.

Online networking app

We are also rolling out a conference app called Guild to facilitate online networking and discussions. Attendees can participate before, during and – crucially – after the conference sessions. You will be able to request meetings or calls with other attendees.

Replay sessions on demand

If you miss any sessions, don't worry because they will be available for attendees to replay till the end of June. 

This event is CPD certified.
