On Thursday February 6, 2020 LG Electronics sent the majority of their customers a formal note about their withdrawal from #ISE2020 due to their (own) concerns over #coronavirus.
Here it is in full …
Following the World Health Organization’s declaration last week
the coronavirus outbreak constituted a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), LG Electronics regrets that it will be withdrawing from Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2020 scheduled for Amsterdam,
LG regrets having to make this difficult decision but the safety of its employees and customers continues to be its number one priority. With the WHO recommending that individuals “promote social distancing,” LG management believed that the most responsible decision was to avoid participating in large public events until the situation stabilised.
Related meetings and discussions will be rescheduled locally in more private settings.
LG Electronics appreciates the support from its business partners and customers for their understanding.
