IBC is one of the world’s largest trade shows when it comes to video production. It takes place in Amsterdam each September, coupling nicely with NAB in April. For 2020, though, neither of those shows is going ahead, as IBC announces that they have also cancelled this year’s show, originally scheduled for September 11-14th.
The news comes just days after Panasonic announced their intention to withdraw from the IBC 2020 show. The Dutch government recently announced that their ban on large scale events would stay in place until September 1st, but even if they are allowed after that point, IBC CEO, Mike Crimp says that they cannot guarantee that the IBC event will be safe for visitors.
