2020 Cancellation Information

WEF made the difficult decision not to hold the 2020 Residuals and Biosolids Conference. Recent developments with the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the importance of minimizing the spread of the illness were key factors in our decision to cancel. The expanding reach of COVID-19 has also made it impossible for us to deliver a high-quality program and networking opportunities as promised. Additionally, concerns expressed by conference participants and recent travel restrictions by organizations and government agencies contributed to our decision.

Based on the unprecedented nature of this situation, within 45 days, WEF will issue full refunds to attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors of all fees paid to WEF.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time and for your continued support of WEF.
