Interspill 2022, the European oil spill conference and exhibition, will take place at the RAI Exhibition Centre, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 21-23 June 2022. As a supporter of the event and member of the organising committee, the IOPC Funds’ Secretariat is involved in the organisation of the conference and will also have a stand at the exhibition, providing information on the work of the organisation as well as guidance on the claims process and admissibility criteria.
Interspill 2022 will be one of the first face to face events for the oil spill industry since the pandemic, following a coordinated decision by the three triennial oil spill events (IOSC, Spillcon and Interspill) to postpone each of the events by one year. Interspill is committed to ensuring the 2022 event is COVID safe and welcoming to exhibitors, conference delegates and visitors alike.
A call for papers has been issued for those interested in presenting at the conference with the deadline for submission of 250-word abstracts by 31 October 2021. A number of seminars, workshops, training events and networking activities are planned to run alongside the conference and exhibition. Further information can be found here.
The IOPC Funds are looking forward to this opportunity to reconnect with the response community, to extending awareness of the role of the organisation and to contributing to the training activities relating to preparedness by discussing claims for compensation for damage caused by a major oil or HNS spill.
