Originally scheduled to be held from 2-6 June, COMPUTEX 2020 has been delayed to 28-30 September in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The annual trade show will be held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre, Hall 2 (TaiNEX 2) and is slated to feature 5G communications, smart solutions, gaming, and InnoVEX (startups).
With the outright cancellation of large-scale trade shows such as MWC 2020 and E3, it's somewhat surprising to see that TAITRA, the organisers of COMPUTEX, have enough confidence to keep the show going, albeit at a later date.
TATIRA cited McKinsey's latest epidemic report, which states:
The epidemic in China and East Asia will be controlled at the beginning of the second quarter, and the epidemic situation in Europe and the United States will slow down in June.
In any case, TAITRA has encouraged exhibitors who will not be making a physical appearance to conduct their product launches online, so it's possible that we may still be seeing launches ahead of COMPUTEX in September.
