NVIDIA has officially confirmed that “GTC20” will still happen, however the event will no longer be public and the conference will be an online event.
NVIDIA CEO’s Jensen Huang GTC2020 Keynote will be livestreamed
Attendees who registered for GTC pass will receive a full refund. Speakers of GTC 2020 will be asked to publish their talks online and the opening keynote of NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang will be an online event only.
This is a direct response to the Coronavirus outbreak, many important conferences and media events have already been canceled.
It is quite obvious that NVIDIA wants the San Jose event to happen no matter what. Jensen Huang clearly has some important updates. The San Jone event is considered the main GTC 2020 event.
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.
