NVIDIA finds no antivirus to Coronavirus
NVIDIA to deliver GTC news without a live webcast
NVIDIA has once again changed its plans for this year’s GTC 2020. The first announcement was that the event will be shifted into an online webcast, where NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang would provide an opening keynote. The plans have changed once again.
NVIDIA will issue news announcements that have been planed to be shared in the keynote, a keynote that now has been canceled.
It is for sure an interesting decision by NVIDIA, considering the importance of GTC keynotes for the company and Jensen himself.
NVIDIA will also host an investor call right after the news announcement. See the press release below for more details.
NVIDIA today announced that, in light of the spread of the coronavirus, it is deferring plans to deliver a webcast keynote as part of the digital version of its GPU Technology Conference later this month.
The company will, instead, issue on Tuesday, March 24, news announcements that had been scheduled to be shared in the keynote. This will be followed by an investor call with NVIDIA founder and Chief Executive Officer Jensen Huang, which will be accessible to other listeners.
The call will begin at 8am Pacific time and will be accessible at investor.nvidia.com.
NVIDIA had initially planned to host its 11th annual GTC on March 22-26 at the San Jose Convention Center, with an anticipated audience of 10,000. Amid the worsening coronavirus situation, the company said earlier this month that it was shifting much of the conference to its digital platform.
The company believes that continuing public health uncertainties would challenge its ability to produce and deliver a digital keynote.
Other components of GTC Digital will still take place, including live webinars, recorded talks and panels, research posters, trainings, and Connect with Experts sessions available starting Wednesday, March 25. More details will be provided in the coming days.
