Facebook cancels its global marketing conference due to Covid-19 fears

Facebook has cancelled its global marketing summit due to Covid-19 fears.

In a statement to Reuters, a Facebook spokesperson said that the global marketing summit is cancelled "out of an abundance of caution" and "evolving public health risks related to coronavirus". The marketing summit was scheduled for next month in San Francisco where more than 4,000 participants were expected to attend.

Earlier this week, the GSMA announced that Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 is cancelled over travel concerns caused by the Covid-19.
