Biofuture Summit II new dates confirmed for Nov 30 - Dec 2, 2020

March 24, 2020,

Dear participant of the BBEST2020 and Biofuture Summit II joint conference

As previously communicated, the current global pandemic has forced us to postpone the BBEST 2020 – Biofuture Summit II Conference, originally due from March 30 to April 2nd, in São Paulo, Brazil. 

Today, we are pleased to bring you some good news: following consultations with stakeholders and service providers, we are in a position to confirm that the joint BBEST2020 / Biofuture Summit II conference will now be held from November 30 – December 2, 2020, in the same venue – Hotel Renaissance, São Paulo. 

Beyond the change of date, our expectation is that the exciting  program we have put together with your help — as well as all invited speakers, guests, attendants, registrations and volunteer papers and posters — that had been accepted will remain in place by default. We may, however have to make adjustments in some cases. 

As the new date is now confirmed, if you are a registered attendant, speaker, invitee, Biofuture government representative, or other partner, we invite you to update your travel preparations. Those who had travel arrangements done through the conference organization will be soon specifically contacted.

Specifically for speakers: please, confirm your plans as soon as possible by e-mail to bbest@sbbq.org.br and summit@biofutureplatform.org so that we can ratify the Program.

For authors of BBEST abstracts: you will in due time be allowed to update your submissions, as the conference will now occur 8 months after the original date. For the same reason, authors of volunteer papers who will not be able to participate in Nov-Dec will be allowed to designate representatives to present on their behalf.

The current COVID-19 outbreak will eventually be overcome, and the sustainable low carbon bioeconomy and bioenergy will be even more relevant. Come and help build the sustainable biofuture the world needs!

We look forward to welcome you soon to São Paulo.
