We have been closely monitoring the situation of Covid-19 and its impact on global travel plans and the likely attendance at our Coaltrans School of Coal Singapore 2020 event. After consultation with our speakers, sponsors and wider community, we have taken the decision to cancel the event this year. 

We have not taken this decision lightly, but the wellbeing of our customers, partners and team is of paramount importance, and we appreciate the trust they have placed in us in supporting the event. 

We have concluded that in order to execute an event that best serves your needs, it would be better to postpone to a later date, and this is likely to be on 15-18 March 2021.  

We are now working hard to provide some of the planned content to you. We will share details of this as soon as we can. 

Coaltrans School of Coal Singapore will return in 2021 and if you are happy to do so, we will transfer your delegate place. 

If you would prefer to transfer to our 2021 event, or cancel and be refunded - please contact us on: events@coaltrans.com with how you wish to proceed, along with any other questions you may have.
