Digital World Tunnel Congress 2020

The International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA) and the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) jointly announced that WTC 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will be moved to a fully digital platform due to the impacts of COVID-19, including border restrictions and health risks associated with international travel and the assembly of large meetings.

IEM commits to refund 70% of payments already made to WTC 2020 by sponsors, exhibitors and registered participants and 100% refund for the charges paid by registered participants for side events such as gala dinner, site visits etc. This refund includes about 8.5% from ITA by waiving all of its entitlements.

The digital WTC 2020 is currently in preparation at no extra cost for those already registered. The WTC organizing committee will notify all sponsors, exhibitors and registrants of the format for the digital event. A digital book of proceedings will also be made available to all registrants. The dates for the digital WTC2020 remain unchanged from 11th to 17th September 2020.
