Geospatial World Forum Amsterdam cancelled 2020

In recognition of the growing health risks worldwide posed by the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), it is with great regret, to inform you that Geospatial Media has decided to cancel its most premier conference – Geospatial World Forum (GWF) scheduled from 7-9 April 2020 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Although there is no travel restriction currently in place in The Netherlands, but with rising cases each day we feel that it would not be responsible of us to proceed with the conference at this time. Additionally, many of our participants across the world are facing travel restrictions imposed by governments and companies to prepare for the outbreak. In last few days, many of our exhibitors, speakers and participants already expressed their dismay and disappointment at not being able to join GWF due to the travel restrictions and health concerns, and we are sure many of us would empathize with them.

As the health and safety of our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, delegates and colleagues is our top most priority at the moment, we believe given the current situation, cancelling the event is for the overall benefit of all.

We plan to host GWF 2021 in April at the same venue. The new dates and other details will be shared in due course.

We’re hopeful this unfortunate occurrence passes by soon and the world emerges stronger and more united at the end of it. Your support and cooperation are highly appreciated.

Wishing you and your dear ones good health.
