IBC cancelled its in-person IBC2021 (opens in new tab) event on Nov. 23, less than two weeks before the show was scheduled to start in Amsterdam. Show officials cited “growing concerns” about the COVID-19 situation in The Netherlands, which has seen a surge in cases in recent weeks as well as civil unrest from citizens rioting in protest to COVID-19 restrictions. IBC will now focus on IBC Digital, a platform that was launched in October to encourage interaction between exhibitors and attendees.
