Cancelling the in-person Open edX 2020 Conference

I’m truly disappointed to have to announce that we are cancelling the “in person” Open edX Conference this year.

Given continued concerns about coronavirus, we concluded that cancelling the event was the responsible thing to do. Already many of our institutional partners and sponsors have banned all business-related travel through May. More details are in today’s blog post: https://open.edx.org/blog/cancelling-the-in-person-2020-open-edx-conference/

Over the course of the next week, we will be determining the path forward and whether we will run Open edX 2020 as a virtual conference.

Ultimately, we have decided that we won’t be holding a virtual conference this May.
