Another day, another event cancelled. Nvidia has just confirmed that GTC 2020, as we knew it, isn't happening. Instead, Nvidia has decided to transition its GPU Technology Conference to an online-only event, cancelling their plans to use the San Jose Convention Center. 

Nvidia has cited "growing concern over the coronavirus", as the primary reason for this change, stating that "the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our customers" are a "top priority". Right now, Nvidia is working with conference speakers to start publishing their planned talks online.  

GTC 2020 is still due to start on March 22nd and end on March 26th, but the event is going to be unlike previous years. There will be no in-person meetings, talks or keynotes, everything will be online, removing any potential Coronavirus risks. 

Jensen Huang still plans to host GTC 2020's premiere keynote, which will be available exclusively via livestream. At this time, Nvidia livestream hasn't been scheduled. We will update you on when this stream will take place when the information is available. Nvidia has also promised to refund those who have registered and paid for a GTC pass. 

Below is Nvidia's full announcement regarding GTC 2020's online shift. 

  

    NVIDIA has decided to shift GTC 2020 on March 22-26 to an online event due to growing concern over the coronavirus.

This decision to move the event online instead of at the San Jose Convention Center reflects our top priority: the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our customers.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote address, which will be available exclusively by livestream. We’re working to schedule that and will share details once they’re available.

We will be working with our conference speakers to begin publishing their talks online beginning in the weeks ahead. Please visit https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gtc/ for updates.

Additionally, for those in NVIDIA’s developer program, we plan to schedule availability with our researchers, engineers and solution architects to answer technical questions.

Those who have registered for a GTC pass will receive a full refund. Stay tuned for details.

We’re grateful to the great many individuals and partners who have worked to support this event and thank them for their understanding during these unusual times.
