• The Conference


Information updated: March 11, 2020

The Biodiesel Production Technology Summit (BPTS) in Minneapolis, and the Minneapolis Convention Center are working to ensure that attendees are as safe as possible from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) at the 2020 BPTS.

Actively working with the Minneapolis Convention Center, below is our conference action plan to help ensure attendees have a safe conference environment.
  • Placing hand-sanitizing stations in every public lobby. We will also have sanitizer throughout the trade show floor, near the registration desk and near all session rooms
  • Limiting handshakes and contact with other guests
  • Disinfecting areas more frequently that see more hand touching like door handles, water fountains and bathroom fixtures
  • We use Zep DZ-7 Neutral Disinfectant Cleaner which is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, is virucide and kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria
  • Suspending self-serve condiments for meal options and offering limited buffet service
  • Providing additional training as determined by the Department of Health for food preparation, service and safety to catering team leads and staff
  • Increasing cleaning frequency of kitchen prep areas with sanitization at the end of each shift and full kitchen sanitization daily
  • Disinfectant wipes provided for all exhibitors
We encourage everyone to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses and the Minnesota Department of Health, which is leading the state and city preparedness and information dissemination.

There are no plans to postpone or cancel the 2020 Biodiesel Production Technology Summit. And we’d like to remind attendees and exhibitors that there are no travel bans for people in the U.S., nor are airlines cancelling flights. We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation.

The exhibitors and sponsors join us in looking forward to seeing everyone in Minneapolis and having a very productive event.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
