The pandemic has forced the cancellation of our flagship event, GreenTech 2020, which was set for June 2-4 in Montreal, Quebec.
While disappointing, this situation is beyond anyone’s control, and Green Marine does not have any choice but to accept it and try to mitigate some of the unavoidable losses due to this cancellation. As many of you know, GreenTech enables Green Marine to tangibly pursue its mission from the profits generated by the event being reinvested to further improve the environmental program.
We understand that COVID-19 is also affecting all of our members. Accordingly, for those who have paid for sponsorship we offered different options. One of them was to keep supporting Green Marine to help us cope with the losses for this year-canceled event. Our team is working on developing interactive, video-conference sessions based on aspects of the GreenTech 2020 preliminary program, which will be announced once the current upheaval subsides.
Some sponsors have already committed to maintain their 2020 support to our Virtual GreenTech, others to retain their support for the upcoming GreenTech events. Thank you to all for your continued support.
