We are sad to see that the impact of coronavirus COVID-19 has meant another key show for our industry has had to be postponed – the ConnecTechAsia event in Singapore scheduled for June.
Recognised by many as the third show behind IBC and NAB, ConnecTechAsia, situated in an area identified as a COVID -19 hotspot, has now been rescheduled for 29 September – 1 October at Singapore EXPO & MAX Atria. A number of the events that have so far been postponed have been rescheduled for the beginning of Q4 a time of year traditionally busy with expos.
Obviously the whole world is at risk of this pernicious virus and in addition to those events that have been cancelled, postponed and/or rescheduled, we are seeing increasing apprehension concerning international travel that may have further impact on international events.
Clearly we are not unique; this epidemic is affecting all events and most industries, markets and supply chains. However, “IABM is ideally placed to provide both up to the minute information and a wide range of supporting services for both technology vendors and buyers in broadcast and media.
We are in constant contact with organisers of all the shows and events in our industry worldwide, and we have created a page on our website where you can see the latest status and statements on all these events in the light of COVID-19 coronavirus here” – Peter White, IABM CEO
