Due to public health concerns related to the coronavirus outbreak, the organizers of CloudFest see no alternative but to cancel CloudFest 2020. The annual cloud, hosting and data center industry event was scheduled for March 14 – 19 in Europa Park in Rust, Germany.
“The health and safety of our attendees, partners, presenters, and colleagues is of the utmost importance to us,” stated the CloudFest Team. “We were forced to consider the growing risk of exposure, especially in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, where our event is located. The unclear infection path, as well as the risk of quarantine orders lasting several weeks on short notice, could not be ignored. With over 7,000 people from the cloud community expected to gather from almost every continent, the risk of inadvertently spreading the virus was just too high.”
“We know that this news will bring frustration as well as a few challenges, and we hope you understand why we arrived at this decision,” added the CloudFest team. “We’re grateful to our partners for their support and cooperation. If you were planning to join us and booked your passes, hotel, or train ticket through our CloudFest Registration tool, you will receive a full refund.”
The next edition of CloudFest is scheduled for March 20-25, 2021. Tickets will go on sale in the late summer.
