STLE 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition – Cancelled
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 75th STLE Annual Meeting & Exhibition scheduled to take place in Chicago has been cancelled. The meeting was originally planned for May 3-7 and was postponed March 16. After thoughtful analysis of the situation and consultation with leaders within the tribology and lubricants community during the past few weeks, STLE’s board of directors made the decision to not hold the meeting in 2020.
“We believe this to be the most prudent course of action in light of the COVID-19 pandemic situation,” said STLE President Michael Duncan. “Simply put, it would have been impossible to conduct an Annual Meeting at which STLE could ensure the health and safety of all involved and provide the business and networking benefits that make this a premier event.”
STLE thanks its members and participants for your patience and understanding in the time leading up to this decision and as we go forward. The STLE Board of Directors has provided a list of FAQs to help with any questions you may have about the cancellation. Click here for the list of FAQs.
