EEEGR moves SNS 2022 event to May due to Omicron

The flagship event of the region’s energy industry, SNS 2022 Energy Integrated in the East, will be moving to a new date of May 25-26 due to the ongoing high level of infection rates created by the Omicron variant. The event was set to take place in March this year following its hiatus in 2021.

The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) has said the decision to move the event to later in the year is part of a larger strategic decision to move all quarter one events to ensure maximum attendance and engagement from its audiences following high covid infection rates. The move will allow the business community to get back to a higher level of confidence as infection rates diminish and businesses and industry once again open back up after a difficult 24 months. Martin Dronfield, EEEGR’s executive chair said: “We, along with many other organisations, have once again seen the impact the pandemic continues to have on business activity. EEEGR takes its duty of care for our staff, members and those we interact with very seriously and so we have taken the decision to delay our flagship event. “It has become increasing clear that many organisations have already imposed restrictions on staff movement and attendance at large exhibition and conferences. We want to ensure that any event we deliver is meaningful, engaging and provides value for money and we believe that by moving SNS 2022 to later in the year we will once again attract the calibre of speakers, delegates and exhibitors that industry want to interact with.” Each year EEEGR’s SNS conference and exhibition attracts over a thousand delegates globally from across the energy sector, giving them the opportunity to gain an insight into where the industry is heading and to keep up to date on new trends and challenges. SNS will be back for the first time since 2019 at the Norfolk Showground with 70-plus exhibitors and a packed conference agenda. EEEEGR will again be utilising technology with the ‘silent conferencing’ system, allowing the delivery of a diverse range of speakers and topics. The exhibition will also showcase the region’s supply chain in a new and modern way with a new shell scheme set up, much more in line with industry international conferences and will highlight all that the region has to offer the ever-growing industry.
