The Gastech Virtual Summit 2020 is being held in place of the Gastech exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place in Singapore, in September. dmg events and the Gastech Governing Body, in consultation with Enterprise Singapore and the Singapore Tourism Board collectively took the decision to postpone that event, to next year, due to concerns around the global pandemic, accessibility and the wellbeing of speakers, delegates, exhibitors and visitors.
