With so much news going on these days, I could find lot of global events have been hit hard by Coronavirus. You could find lot of breaking news is on the cards lately about virus breakout, but every now and I always like to read global events which will be hosted soon.

From phones to watches, planes to jeans, some of the globe’s biggest trade exhibitions are being cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. In addition more and more firms are pulling events over fears of spreading the deadly disease, with many attendees having to alter travel plans and schedules.

In recent news the most high-profile cancellation so far has been the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, which was actually due to take place at the end of this month. It is enumerated that BT, Ericsson, Facebook, LG, Nokia, Sony and Vodafone were among the key brands visitors were hoping to experience. The event usually generally attracts more than 100,000 people, with an estimated almost 6,000 of them travelling from China.

In addition the popular Cisco Live, set to take place in Melbourne at the beginning of March, with more than 8,500 people expected to attend, has also been called off. Earlier this month Switzerland’s familiar watchmaker Swatch cancelled its “Time to Move” summit for the media and retailers due to outbreak of the coronavirus.

Moreover The Singapore Airshow, which takes place every two years, naturally attracts hundreds of global aerospace firms as they illustrate their latest products and hope to strike multi-million dollar deals. It is reported that the number of exhibitors pulling out of the show has topped 70, including some of the biggest names in the aerospace industry, including US giant Lockheed Martin.  It is also added that so far there was exhibitor who has cancelled because of the outbreak of the baleful virus.
