NVIDIA GTC San Jose to be Online Event Due to Coronavirus


NVIDIA has announced via their blog that their annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC) will be held as an online event. The event was previously planned to be held at the San Jose Convention Center. Like many other recent conferences and expos, NVIDIA is citing the COVID-19 coronavirus as the primary cause of the change. The company cites health reasons for all attendees as paramount and for now, the best recourse is an online event.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote during the event which will be streamed exclusively. Pass holders shall be afforded a full refund.

NVIDIA has decided to shift GTC 2020 on March 22-26 to an online event due to growing concern over the coronavirus.

This decision to move the event online instead of at the San Jose Convention Center reflects our top priority: the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our customers.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote address, which will be available exclusively by livestream. We’re working to schedule that and will share details once they’re available.

We will be working with our conference speakers to begin publishing their talks online beginning in the weeks ahead. Please visit https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gtc/ for updates.

Additionally, for those in NVIDIA’s developer program, we plan to schedule availability with our researchers, engineers and solution architects to answer technical questions.

Those who have registered for a GTC pass will receive a full refund. Stay tuned for details.

We’re grateful to the great many individuals and partners who have worked to support this event and thank them for their understanding during these unusual times.

The coronavirus scare has caused many events to be postponed or cancelled with the Taipei Game Show, Mobile World Congress, amongst others. Another event that NVIDIA is always present is COMPUTEX, which have announced their firm stance in keeping their events open for the year.
