Facebook canceled all physical events with more than 5o people through June 2021. They will replace some of them with virtual events, but Mark Zuckerberg didn’t provide further details in his post.
This outlook is certainly a bit grim since Facebook could set an example for the IT business. We might see other tech organizers to shift to digital events for an extended period. One cannot help but think that Covid19 is here to stay for some time and we’ll feel the effects of this pandemic for a long time.
