Metal Powder Industries Federation Cancels WorldPM2020
WorldPM2020/AMPM2020/Tungsten2020 cancelled due to pandemic
Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) announced today the cancellation of the co-located conferences WorldPM2020, the World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials; AMPM2020, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy; and Tungsten2020, the International Conference on Tungsten, Refractory & Hardmaterials that were scheduled to take place June 27–July 1, 2020, in Montréal, Canada.
“After thoughtful deliberation, MPIF leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel. The conferences will not be rescheduled,” Adams announced.
“The health, safety, and well-being of the global powder metallurgy community is our highest priority,” stated James P. Adams, MPIF Executive Director/CEO. Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring a pandemic; numerous companies, universities and government institutions initiating travel restrictions; and ever-increasing numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases; all provided a clear need to take this action.
