LONDON (ICIS)--Budapest is to host the 2020 European Petrochemical Association (EPCA) annual meeting.

EPCA will return to the Hungarian capital after three years in which the conference was held in Berlin, Vienna and again Berlin this year.

The annual meeting will take place on 4-7 October 2020.

The number of delegates for 2019's 53rd meeting  stood at "more than 2,500", according to EPCA sources.

The EPCA president said in an interview with ICIS on 7 October that, while the number would be lower than the 2,700 achieved in 2018 in Vienna, he was not too concerned about this.

At the beginning of the 2019 meeting, sources at EPCA had already conceded that "everyone is feeling the pinch" due to the economic slowdown, and that would be reflected in the delegate count.

The EPCA annual conference ran in Berlin on 6-9 October.
