The pandemic continues to disrupt planned events, summits and conventions. It was therefore no surprise that the premier technology event in Europe was no exception. The Web Summit which is normally held in Lisbon, Portugal is now postponed. It was earlier this year going to be a part virtual and physical event. However, because the resurgence of the pandemic in Europe is now at levels obtained in the early parts of this year. The event is now said to be happening in December and as a completely virtual affair. Many other events such as AMAZON Web Services, Mobile World Congress and many others have been cancelled. The World Economic summit has also postponed its event meant to be held in January to May in Switzerland.
There will be many more that will follow this trend as the resurgent second wave of the pandemic takes hold.
