As a part of measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, CEATEC 2020 canceled the physical exhibition at the Makuhari Messe amd it is transforming it to a fully online event.
The Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, or CEATEC, will take place as scheduled from Oct 20 to 23, said the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association and other organizers. Further details will be available from mid-June.
The previous edition held at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, near Tokyo, saw over 780 exhibitors from Japan and abroad showcasing their latest electronics technologies and drew about 150,000 visitors.
Organizers of the Tokyo Game Show also said in May they plan to hold this year's event, initially planned for Makuhari Messe, online from Sept 24 to 27 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
