HOUSTON - Due to circumstances arising from the ongoing spread of COVID-19 and the continuing danger it poses to public health and safety, the NACE International Board of Directors announced that CORROSION 2020, NACE’s Annual Conference & Expo will not take place in Houston this June 14-18.

Originally scheduled for March 2020, the association postponed its conference based on guidelines available at that time from the U.S. Government, Centers for Disease Control, and World Health Organization. Since then, the COVID-19 outbreak has escalated worldwide. In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott recently issued an executive order, which does not change prior orders prohibiting mass gatherings and events. The executive order also includes protocols that direct all Texans to minimize social gatherings and in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.

Over the next few days and weeks NACE will work with event venues, registrants, exhibitors, and sponsors to process all changes, refunds, transfers, etc. All questions can be directed to NACE International’s First Service team at firstservice@nace.org or by phone at 800/797.6223 (U.S./Canada) or +1-281-228-6223 worldwide.
