Search Engine Giant Google Delays its Digital Cloud Next Event Due To Coronavius Pandemic

The company has said it would refund attendees both the cost of tickets for the event and hotel stays

Google has indefinitely delayed even its digital-only Cloud Next conference next month amid the growing new coronavirus pandemic.

Google earlier announced to turn its event into Google Cloud Next ’20: Digital Connect’ — a free, global, digital-first, multi-day event connecting attendees to Next ’20 content and each other through streamed keynotes, breakout sessions, interactive learning and digital ask an expert’ sessions with Google teams.

Now, the tech giant said it will be postponing the event indefinitely “out of concern for the health and safety of our customers, partners, employees and local communities, and based on recent decisions made by the federal and local governments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).”

The company says it is “fully committed to bringing Google Cloud Next ’20: Digital Connect to life, but will hold the event when the timing is right.”

The company has said it would refund attendees both the cost of tickets for the event and hotel stays.

According to The Verge, it appears the decision is related to “shelter in place” order instituted for the San Francisco Bay Area.

US President Donald Trump has also advised citizens to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people.
