COVID-19 updates

10 April 2021

We wanted to have a physical, however, with the continuing challenges of COVID 19 and ongoing complications with international travel we hope you will you be able to join us at our IFBF virtual summer symposium from 7 – 9 July 2021.

Our symposium will provide opportunities for discussion and networking, showcase flow battery progress, and review some international flow battery R&D programmes. 

We sincerely hope to plan a physical event either at the end of 2021 or during 2022. A full IFBF, with papers on flow battery research, development, technology updates and commercialisation, as well as panel discussions and invited talks on general flow battery topics. If possible, we will provide further details in the next two or three months.

In previous years we have hosted our conferences in various countries and enjoyed welcoming delegates, speakers, presenters, exhibitors and sponsors in person. We’ve combined conferences with visits to commercial and academic institutions, and become friends with many of the leading figures in the flow battery industry.

But, like others, we have had to adapt to the challenges of COVID-19. While we sincerely hope to return to physical events in the future, the present is virtual. Our next conference – our eleventh – will be held online as a virtual event over three days, 19-21 January 2021.

And virtual conferences have their advantages. They bring flexibility; you can watch online from your home or the office. You can join us live and still ask questions. Or watch later at your convenience. We have chosen the Attendify platform for its flexibility and ease of use. Attendify is available via a web browser, or on mobile devices via the Attendify app. There will be live keynote speakers and panel sessions. There is a dedicated area for posters and their presenters. With Attendify’s chat feature you can talk with the experts and network as before.

It might be a bit different, but it’s still the same team, and it’s still the best place to talk flow batteries.

We have decided to transfer our conference to an online, virtual event. It will take place over three days, 19-21 January 2021. Our online IFBF Showcase in the summer showed us a virtual event has value and we believe that this is in the best interests of delegates, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and our staff. We recognise the negative impact on the planned conference venue and hope that a face-to-face conference will be possible later in 2021.
