Dear friends and partners of ONS

Despite the challenging times we are all amidst, I sincerely hope you are in good hope and health.

I can assure you that my ONS team and I are doing our utmost to create an inspiring and relevant meeting place week in Stavanger from 31 August to 3 September.

I can assure you that my ONS team and I are doing our utmost to create an inspiring and relevant meeting place week in Stavanger from 31 August to 3 September.

Like everyone else, however, we´re fighting against the serious COVID-19 situation we still don´t know all the consequences and timing of. The personal, local, national and global challenges we´re facing right now need no further explanation. We are all in it and shall overcome it TOGETHER.

We are receiving daily inquiries about how this situation will affect the ONS 2020 event. This is highly understandable.

Unfortunately, no one knows how the coronavirus will behave and the future outcome. The drastic measures implemented by the Norwegian authorities are valid until 26 March. ONS 2020 is more than five months away and hopefully the situation is very different in a few months.

We are monitoring the situation closely and promise to update all our stakeholders if the situation should change in considerable way.

Last week my team moved out of our premises downtown Stavanger, and we´re currently running our daily duties from home. The teamwork and spirit in our organisation are good, and we´re making good progress in our programme.

I can assure that you all have something to look forward to. This year we are proud to present some new and extended features such as Renewable Markets, Corporate Venture and scale-ups, a brand new public debate scene ONS + Energy Talks and not least our new publication; the ONS Energy Agenda.

Nevertheless, the health and safety of all our guests is our priority number one. I am proud of the huge efforts all nations and citizens are putting into the fight of COVID-19 virus, and we cross our fingers for a quick recovery.

Nothing would make me and the team happier than to meet and greet you in Stavanger at the end of August and beginning of September.

In the meantime, take care and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the ONS 2020 event.

Best wishes from,

Leif Johan Sevland
President & CEO
