Two more major companies have just officially confirmed that their representatives won’t be participating in the largest show for media, entertainment, and technology that’s supposed to take place next month in Las Vegas.
Western Digital and Adobe have just joined AJA, Nikon and Zaxcom, the first companies that pulled out of NAB 2020 due to the growing concerns around Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak across the globe. The NAB show is still going ahead as planned, at least for now.
Here’s the official statement of Adobe:
Each year, we look forward to seeing our video community at NAB to talk about the industry and our product innovations. Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 and have made the difficult but important decision to cancel our presence at the show this year. While we are disappointed, the health and safety of our employees and customers is highest priority. We look forward to engaging with our NAB community through digital experience in the near future.
And the one from Western Digital:
The health and safety of our employees is a top priority for Western Digital. Due to concerns regarding the coronavirus, we have taken the precautionary measure to withdraw from participating in NAB 2020.
The news comes in a moment when the Photography Show in the UK was postponed for later this year and after the announcement that SXSW 2020 was completely called off earlier last week.
