INTERSPILL DELAYED TO 2022 AS A UNIFIED RESPONSE TO COVID-19
As a consequence of the escalating Covid-19 pandemic, and as part of a coordinated response by the three triennial events, it has been agreed to postpone the 2020 IOSC to 2021, move the next Interspill event to 2022 and delay Spillcon to 2023.
The new Interspill 2022 dates, and confirmation of the venue, will be confirmed in the coming months. www.interspill.org
IOSC 2021 will now take place in the original host city of New Orleans, Lousiana, USA but on10-13 May 2021. www.iosc.com.
Spillcon will take place in 2023, with further details to be confirmed. www.spillcon.com. The successful three-year cycle of events is preserved by these shifts.
Richard Proctor, Chairman of Interspill, said that “the decision was unanimous and reflected the importance of reacting to the global health crisis in tandem with the other events in this triennial series. Clearly, for Interspill delaying to 2022 is a disappointment, but understandable. The decision to postpone IOSC and shift the triennial series by one year was made with the best interest of all involved, with the well-being of constituents being top priority. The ongoing spread of COVID-19 has resulted in continued concern over health and safety, along with travel advisories, event size restrictions, and closures.

Interspill will continue to act as a technical forum to review past and consider future spills, and support the networking that this group depends on.
