Google Cloud has announced it is postponing its Google Cloud Next developer conference.
Google had already altered the format of Google Cloud Next to be presented digitally, rather than in-person. As the coronavirus pandemic has continued to spread and impact people around the globe, the company has now decided to postpone even the digital version until further notice.
“Google Cloud has decided to postpone Google Cloud Next ‘20: Digital Connect 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),” writes Alison Wagonfeld Chief Marketing Officer, Google Cloud.
“Right now, the most important thing we can do is focus our attention on supporting our customers, partners, and each other.
“Please know that we are fully committed to bringing Google Cloud Next ‘20: Digital Connect to life, but will hold the event when the timing is right. We will share the new date when we have a better sense of the evolving situation.”
