An updated list of events

The COVID-19 epidemic has been spreading quickly over the past weeks and by now it has enveloped the entire world. This calls for drastic measures and tough decisions in many aspects of business and life in general. As per usual, many events have been scheduled to take place in the early spring of 2020 and event organisers had to react fast. The decisions are varied; some events are being moved online, some postponed to a later, already known date, others postponed indefinitely and when worst comes to worst, events are being cancelled.

We have no way of knowing how long the epidemic will keep us hindered. To help everyone stay in the know, we are keeping an updated list of events to help track how things are progressing in the event industry.
