The event was scheduled to take place in mid-May in Cologne, Germany. However the event has been delayed by over a year following the rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic, and the subsequent government mandate to ban mass gatherings in the country.
A statement from the organisers said: “We ask all our exhibitors, sponsors, partners and friends for their understanding for this inevitable step. ANGA COM is not only an exhibition and a business for us, but a matter of the heart for which we are burning. But we also put this in relation to the developments that are taking place among our friends in Italy and worldwide.
“That is why we wish above all that the world community pulls together to get the pandemic under control as quickly as possible.”
Existing attendants will be able to carry their tickets over to 2021, or cancel by April 15.
2019’s ANGA COM saw more than 20,000 attendants from 83 countries and over 83 exhibitors.
Exhibitors included vendors such as Cisco, CommScope and Nokia, while 2,400 participants from the likes of Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Discovery were featured during conference talks.
ANGA COM has become the latest show to be postponed as a result of coronavirus. Next month’s NAB Show was called off last week, while other cancelled events include SXSW, Cabsat, MIPTV, the European launch of Disney+ and SportsInnovation 2020.
