An exciting new event to lead Canada's clean electricity transformation

Electricity Transformation Canada 2020 Cancellation Notice

Hannover Fairs (Canada) and the Canadian Renewable Energy Association have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and the impact it has had on committed and potential participants, exhibitors, and sponsors of Electricity Transformation Canada 2020. We sincerely hope that all of you, your loved ones and your colleagues have been and remain healthy and safe.

Like so many other event organizers in Canada and around the globe, we were hoping the outlook for the Fall would be more promising at this time with respect to COVID-19. With the Government of Ontario announcing plans to move to Phase 3 of reopening the economy, that outlook is improving but there is still no indication of how or when larger indoor gatherings will be permitted. The Government of Ontario has made no reference to a Phase 4 and provided no direction with respect to when conferences and trade shows may once again be held. The border between Canada and the United States remains closed and there is no certainty as to when it may re-open.

Taking these challenging limitations into account, Electricity Transformation Canada Exhibition & Conference, scheduled to take place November 10-12, 2020 in Toronto is cancelled. While we are extremely disappointed that this much-anticipated inaugural event will not take place this year, our top priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees.

We thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for this exciting new event, and we look forward to welcoming you next year at Electricity Transformation Canada on November 17-19, 2021.

While COVID-19 has resulted in the cancellation of Electricity Transformation Canada 2020, Canada’s electricity system continues to transform. As a result, the Canadian Renewable Energy Association will host a virtual event in November 2020 that will examine the role of wind energy, solar energy, and energy storage in the transformation of electricity systems across Canada. More information on this event will be forthcoming in September 2020, as part of the association’s comprehensive events program for 2020-2021.

On behalf of Hannover Fairs (Canada) and the Canadian Renewable Energy Association teams, we thank you for your patience and continued support as we navigate these difficult times.
