In the official press release, MIT Technology Review and Koelnmesse, the organizers of EmTech Asia 2020 announced the postponement of the conference to August 2020 because of Novel Coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV. The decision was made after Singapore’s Ministry of Health issued the Code Orange alert, which means that the virus has a high impact on public health.
“As the situation pertaining to the Covid-19 is constantly evolving, heightened travel restrictions across the Asia Pacific have meant that postponing the conference is appropriate, as maintaining the health and well-being of each person attending EmTech Asia is our top priority,”
