ERTC North America Announces Cancellation


Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus and subsequent international travel bans, ERTC North America has been cancelled.
We have made this decision in consultation with our partners, venue and local team. Strategic updates for Mexico and the region, including latest technology updates will take place at LARTC on 21-23 September in Cartagena, Colombia

Please contact us directly for further information.

Created by the team behind Europe’s largest downstream event ERTC and the premier regional event in Latin America LARTC, ERTC North America will be centred around innovations in downstream process technology. With increasing pressures on efficiency and the role of refining in the energy transition, the information and assessment of new technology has never been more important.

ERTC North America in conjunction with Pemex will showcase the latest developments in refineries across Mexico and the region and put a spotlight on the latest technologies available to assist the industry promoting knowledge sharing and networking.
