2020 Exploration And Production Standards Conference On Oilfield Equipment And Materials

When: June 29, 2020 - July 03, 2020

Where: Grand Hyatt Washington, Washington, DC

Event Update

For the past few weeks, API has been paying close attention to the developing news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). After much thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the evolving situation, we regret to advise that we decided to cancel the 2020 Exploration And Production Standards Conference On Oilfield Equipment And Materials.

The Grand Hyatt Washington will cancel all reservations from the API group room block. You should confirm with the hotel that your reservation has been canceled and/or rebook if you were planning to come for other business. If you made your reservation outside the API group room block, you will need to contact the hotel directly. Please remember that cancellations must be received by the hotel at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to your expected arrival, and a cancellation number must be obtained, or the card will be charged for the first night’s room rate.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause to you and your business needs. In making this difficult decision, paramount is the health, safety, and welfare of our attendees. We acknowledge that the increase in company-mandated travel restrictions, as well as growing concerns over exposure have made it impossible to ensure the execution of a successful conference experience this spring.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at a future meeting.
