The coronavirus situation has the world’s population divided. On the one side, many aren’t worried. That it’s just SARS, MERS, Bird Flu or Ebola all over again and that it’ll blow over. On the other, some people are very worried, particularly organisers of large events such as MWC in Barcelona, CP+ in Tokyo and now GDC in San Francisco.
TPS, NAB and Photokina all recently announced that they are still currently going ahead as planned, but the situation in Europe has changed since then. A couple of days ago, however, at a press conference in Tokyo, Photokina organisers still say that there is no reason to cancel the event.
