The spread of the coronavirus is raising questions about whether several upcoming tech expos will be cancelled this year. Recently, Mobile World Congress organizer GSMA confirmed that MWC Barcelona 24-27 February 2020, will proceed as planned. But both LG and ZTE have already send out word that they will not be present at this event over coronavirus fears.

WCCF Tech reports smaller events like the Standard Chartered Marathon and the Alibaba Jumpstarter Entrepreneur conference, both in Hong Kong, have been cancelled. Furthermore, the Taipei Game Show in Taiwan has been rescheduled until later this year.

TAITRA, the organizer of Computex, send out a press release this week to confirm that Computex is still a go. Computex is scheduled for June 2-6, 2020 in Taiwan.
Greetings from Taiwan and TAITRA.

In response to the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV or Wuhan Pneumonia), the Taiwan government has taken comprehensive measures to protect the health of the public from the global outbreak.

All events and activities held by TAITRA for international visitors are conducted in full and stringent compliance with health and safety regulations and there is no danger posed to exhibitions and meeting venues in Taiwan.

From the airport to the hotel to the venue and back, visitors can rest assured that they will be safe to visit Taiwan.

In the extremely unlikely event that anyone displays symptoms of the novel coronavirus – or any other disease or illness – visitors can be reassured that Taiwan’s healthcare system and medical sector is continually ranked as one of the top healthcare systems in the world.

Visitors can expect the highest standards for medical assistance, including multiple treatment rooms on hand with the most advanced medical equipment available anywhere in the world.
