ERTC is Europe’s largest and most senior meeting place for the world’s downstream leaders, bringing together refineries and technology providers to address the short, medium and long term issues affecting the industry.

As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, ERTC, originally scheduled to take place on 16-19 November 2020 in Madrid has been postponed to 15-18 November 2021.

If you’re as disappointed as us that you won’t be joining your industry peers in Madrid this year, do not fear, we have created a perfect online replacement for you, introducing: ERTC Virtual. Taking place November 17 – 18, this year's online edition promises to deliver ERTC’s renowned high-level of content, insightful technical streams and unrivalled networking opportunities, where ever you are in the world.
