Facebook has canceled its forthcoming global marketing conference out of wariness towards the coronavirus outbreak, according to Reuters. The conference was set to unfold in March at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Over 3,000 people were expected to attend.
“Our priority is the health and safety of our teams, so out of an abundance of caution, we cancelled our Global Marketing Summit due to evolving public health risks related to coronavirus,” said a Facebook spokesperson in a statement to The Verge.
Facebook canceling its global marketing conference comes on the heels of this week’s cancellation of Mobile World Congress, also due to the coronavirus outbreak. In the days leading up to MWC’s cancelation, several vendors, including LG, Ericsson, Nvidia, Intel, Vivo, Sony, Nokia, BT, and HMD, all pulled out from the show.
