Microsoft has announced the cancellation of this year’s Offline Inspire conference due to the impact of the new corona virus outbreak. But Microsoft has yet to decide whether to delay waiting for the outbreak to end or whether it will be broadcast live online. The conference, which was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas from July 19 to 23, is primarily a partner-oriented technical event.
“The security of our communities is paramount,” Microsoft explains. In accordance with the health and safety recommendations of public health authorities, we will not hold Microsoft Inspire 2020 on-site events. We are exploring alternativeways to connect and learn from our partner communities. Stay tuned for more details. “
“Given the global health problems caused by the new coronavirus (COVID-19), Microsoft is monitoring public health guidance on face-to-face events,” Microsoft said. We’re looking at the calendar of events and how engaged we are at industry events in the coming months. We don’t make decisions lightly, but the health and well-being of our customers, partners, guests, suppliers and employees remains our top priority. “
