Thank you for joining us in celebrating this anniversary event that marked 12 Years of International Perforating Symposia. We hope you  enjoy IPS 2021  in GALVESTON, TX, USA, which includes the Industry Awards and Sponsors Dinner, Technical Presentations and Poster Sessions. It is our mission to facilitate the exchange of technical knowledge concerning the perforating technology and related technologies, by providing opportunities for professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence. 


Dear IPS2021 Sponsors, Registrants and Attendees,


As the novel coronavirus continues to take a human and economic toll across the world, our perforating industry is not immune. 


The IPFC BOD and IPS 2021 Committee have discussed about whether to carry on with IPS2021 as planned and they have decided to reschedule our event due to growing concerns over the potential impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus on our activities. The health and safety of event attendees, exhibitors and committee members is our highest priority and lead to this decision. 


We recommend everyone that booked their hotel to either change your hotel booking date for Aug 23-25, 2021  or cancel your reservations. (please find  the Moody Gardens reservation information below ) 


Sponsorships can remain on deposit or can be refunded, please let us know how you would like to handle sponsorship funds by sending an email at 


We thank everyone for the high interest in attending and the abundant support this event has received from Sponsors. We are confident that once situation is back to normal, it would be another successful event, regardless of the postponed date.
