International Partnering Forum (24-26 August)*

Aanvangsdatum: 24-Aug-2021
Capaciteit: (28% geboekt)

Details

The International Partnering Forum (IPF) is the largest offshore wind conference in the Western hemisphere. IPF is where the offshore wind industry comes together to receive breaking news, gain technical knowledge, and engage in networking opportunities with industry colleagues and decision makers. The IPF is organized by the Business Network for Offshore Wind (BNOW), a non profit organization solely focused on the development of the U.S. offshore wind industry and advancement of its supply chain. 

With the current state of affairs in offshore wind in the U.S., the project pipeline and the release of the final environmental impact statement for Vineyard Wind, which is a big success for the further developments of Vineyard Wind, the time is right to capitalize on business opportunities in the U.S. 

Traveling to the U.S.
If you aren't based in the U.S., it's required to apply for a so-called National Interest Exception (NIE), in order for you to travel to the U.S. Without a NIE, you can't enter the U.S.
For more information and how to apply for this NIE, please check the website of the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands here.  
There's no guarantee this NIE will be granted to you, that's of course up to the U.S Embassy in the Netherlands. 

Applications can take up to 15-30 working days, so make sure to start your application soon if you are planning to visit the IPF.
In case you need documents from the U.S. to support your application (e.g. invitation letter from BNOW), please let us know what you need and we will take care of that together with our local partners. 

President Biden's administration is working on lifting the COVID-19 restrictions posed on EU citizens, but it's premature to put a date on any such move, according to the Administration, which means we don't know if this will happen before the IPF will take place. 

IPF Virtual & Together
The IPF 2021 is being held in two parts: virtual and in-person. 

- IPF Virtual: April 22, May 13, and June 17;
- IPF Together: August 24-26 in Richmond, Virginia. 

By splitting the vast amount of educational content and in-person networking into two segments, the IPF can provide you with the technical and policy information you need and allow for more dedicated time for relationship building at the in-person event. 

Since most of the COVID-19 measures are lifted in Virginia, there's no limit on the amount of visitors at the IPF Together.
