Panasonic today officially announced that it has withdrawn from #IBC2020 which, at the moment, is still scheduled to take place in Amsterdam, Friday September 11, 2020 until Monday September 14, 2020.
The press release stated that Panasonic would be focusing on supporting its partners and customers through its online initiatives, with the launch of its own Technology Experience Zone to help share expertise and information for the industry.
André Meterian, Director of the Professional Video Systems Business Unit for EMEA said “It has been a very difficult decision. As much as we look forward each year to welcoming visitors at this important industry event, we must prioritise the well-being of our staff, partners and attendees. In the meantime, we will focus on creating additional activities and work with partners and industry leaders to continuously develop new content for our Technology Experience Zone, including live streaming, webinars, video podcasts and training. We will further expand our offering and aim to provide online virtual experiences to ensure our customers can stay in touch with the latest news from Panasonic Broadcast & ProAV,”.
