The Aurora Spring Forum is our flagship event, and we see great value in holding it in-person in order to keep the high level of intellectual engagement, provoking debate and premium networking. In response to the changing COVID-19 regulations, we have chosen to postpone the event until Wednesday 29th September 2021.
More information about the Aurora Spring Forum 2021 will be released soon.
The Aurora Spring Forum is one of the leading gatherings of the European energy industry, bringing together key international industry leaders and senior decision makers in an exclusive and intimate setting in Oxford, UK.
The Forum is an opportunity to discuss the medium and long-term challenges of the industry and the topic for 2021 focusses on ‘Building back: Strategising the energy sector’s role in the global economic recovery’. A key subject on the agenda will be the need for international cooperation to achieve a successful energy transition, especially in these challenging times.
