The health emergency that has arisen due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 has triggered alerts worldwide. And the event and exhibition industry is not foreign to this situation.
The current landscape
One of the major events that have been canceled is the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which was going to take place in Barcelona, Spain.
The Cisco Live Melbourne and the Facebook Global Marketing Summit were canceled as well.
But the scene is not so discouraging; some events continue as scheduled like the RSA Conference in San Francisco and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.
Others have resorted to technology to continue promoting their products by having their exhibitions online. However, professionals of the events industry have started to take the measures suggested by health authorities to be able to continue with the development of the events.
