THE 2020 NuTech conference is 100% online.

While the past two conferences (Toronto in 2017 and Cape Town in 2018) were live-streamed, because of COVID-19, there was no in-room attendance in 2020.

It has been common practice for NuTech meetings to be held concurrently with the biennial meetings of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies. However, with the 2020 WFRTDS conference cancelled, NuTech went it alone.
