Google has decided to cancel its annual I/O developer conference, the latest event cancellation as concern about the coronavirus grows among businesses.
The conference, set for May, will be digital only.
"Due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with health guidance from the CDC, WHO, and other health authorities, we have decided to cancel the physical Google I/O event at Shoreline Amphitheatre," Google said in a statement. "Over the coming weeks, we will explore other ways to evolve Google I/O to best connect with and continue to build our developer community. We'll continue to update the Google I/O website."
Attendees will get a full refund, the company said.
Google I/O is the company's most important gathering each year.
On Monday, Google made the same decision for its Cloud Next conference.
