Earlier today COVID-19 took its latest victim as organizers of COMPUTEX Taipei announced they will be rescheduling this years conference to September. COMPUTEX is usually held in June but with the current crisis still in full bloom, a reschedule is better than a complete wash.
Unfortunately, the world is affected by severe infectious pneumonia (COVID-19). As of today, more than 300,000 people have been diagnosed across 167 countries worldwide, impacting the economy, trade, transportation, convention, and tourism. COMPUTEX organizers, TAITRA President & CEO, Mr. Walter Yeh, and TCA Secretary General, Mr. Enoch Du jointly announce, for the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors, the effectiveness of the exhibition, and maintaining the COMPUTEX brand image, COMPUTEX scheduled for June 2-6 will be rescheduled to September.Excerpt from: COMPUTEX Taipei Website
Unlike some of the tech conferences that either no longer exist or have seen steady decline over the years. COMPUTEX has been growing and it is the one tech show I truly look forward to every year.
Organizers said that “for exhibitors who continue to support COMPUTEX, TAITRA will organize a COMPUTEX online exhibition on the Taiwantrade from June 2-6 and invite global buyers to participate in online procurement meetings.”
