IABM Launches Information Portal Concerning Coronavirus Outbreak

The global crisis is affecting industry meetings and shows

With the cancellation of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and SportPRO’s OTT Asia event, the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is having an impact on the broadcast and OTT industry. That is part of the reason IABM created a central online repository with all the latest information from broadcast and media exhibitions and conferences on their current status in the light of the outbreak.

The international trade association for broadcast and media technology contacted all the major broadcast and media shows and is updating the web page as soon as new information comes in. To see the latest news, please click here.

“The reason we have done this is that exhibitions are at the heart of most vendors’ marketing and sales efforts and they need up-to-the-minute information,” says IABM Marketing Consultant Roger Thornton. “We’re also acutely aware that these shows are an essential part of many of [SVG] members’ calendars, and they will find this information equally valuable.”
