Google Cancels I/O 2020 Developer Conference Over Coronavirus Concerns

Google has canceled its annual Google I/O developer conference due to concerns surrounding the ongoing coronavirus situation. The event was due to take place at the company’s Shoreline Amphitheatre in San Francisco.

The company says that it is canceling the physical event, but we should expect to hear more soon about how Google intends to “evolve” Google I/O to “best connect” with the developer community.

Anyone who has already bought tickets will get a full refund, with Google also noting that they will automatically be granted the option to buy a ticket for next year’s event.

All guests who have purchased tickets to I/O 2020 will receive a full refund by March 13, 2020. If you don’t see the credit on your statement by then, please reach out to io@google.com. Guests who have registered for I/O 2020 will not need to enter next year’s drawing and will be automatically granted the option of purchasing an I/O 2021 ticket.

Google I/O is just the latest in a long list of events that have been canceled since coronavirus started to take hold. Mobile World Congress was the first last month, followed by Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference, and Google I/O is very unlikely to be the last one.

Apple’s WWDC event is due to take place in three months, with some suggesting that it too will be canned. Some rumors on Twitter claim that the decision has already been made, with Apple working to find a way to move it online.
