IADC conferences provide a forum to network, share best practices, and increase knowledge and understanding of industry matters.

COVID-19 Update

Please visit specific conference web pages for information related to each conference.

IADC is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and evaluating what impact, if any, it may have on IADC conferences. Please visit specific conference web pages for information related to each conference. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and may reschedule/cancel events, as necessary, in the best interests of attendees, using the World Health Organization as an ongoing information resource. In the meantime, it would be helpful if IADC Members share their company’s plans regarding travel and conference participation, if impacted by COVID-19; this information will help IADC’s Team plan ahead.

IADC conferences serve as opportunities for drillers to come together with like-minded professionals and learn from shared challenges and triumphs.  Conferences are an important part of the value offered by IADC.
