Following rumors that E3 2020 has been canceled, the organizing team behind BitSummit have announced BitSummit The 8th Bit has been canceled.
The 8th edition of BitSummit was originally scheduled for May 9 and May 10, 2020. Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, they have decided to cancel the event. Hopefully it’ll be rescheduled on a later date this year.
Read their full statement below:
Due to the growing concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are very sad to inform you that BitSummit The 8th Bit will no longer be held on May 9th and 10th as planned, as the spread does not show any sign of slowing down.
We would like to extend our deepest apologies for this inconvenience to all of our partners, supporters, exhibitors and long-time visitors who were eager to participate in the 8th edition of BitSummit.
With the safety of our guests being our very first priority, we have made the difficult decision to avoid any chance of the virus spreading any further.
We are incredibly thankful for all the support, advice and encouragement we’ve received from all our partners and patrons. Our plans are to continue working on BitSummit The 8th Bit, and we will share more information on the status of the show in the coming weeks.
The BitSummit Organizing Team.
