IBC announces that the in person IBC2021 event has been cancelled. The move follows growing concerns about the COVID-19 situation in The Netherlands, which has deteriorated over the past week, and feedback from the IBC exhibitor and visitor community.
New figures show that a reported 153,957 new cases of coronavirus were registered in the week to Tuesday morning, a new record and a rise of 39 per cent on last week.

Due to take place on December 3-6 at The RAI in Amsterdam, IBC20201 will now focus on bringing the content and technology community via its IBC Digital event
