Video: The economic impact of coronavirus event cancellations

Major tech conferences around the world are scrapping their events due to coronavirus. As of early March, the economic impact of these cancellations had surpassed $1.1 billion and since that time, the number has only increased as more events are scrapped everyday.

Major cities from San Francisco to New York have banned large gatherings, as diagnoses in the U.S. have soared. It’s undoubtedly a smart move for public safety. But all these cancellations, particularly of major conferences, are taking a huge financial toll.
