Organisers of technology conference Web Summit delayed the event by one month to early December in light of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, with plans to offer both an in-person and online formats, Reuters reported.
Web Summit CEO Paddy Cosgrave (pictured) reportedly told media a decision will be made in early October, when tickets are due to go on sale.
Earlier this month, Cosgrave vowed to stick to an in-person format for the event, but Reuters noted a ban on gatherings of more than ten people in Portugal could scupper this plan.
The event was due to run from 2 November to 5 November, but Cosgrave now moots 2 December to 4 December.
Health guidelines are reportedly set to be reviewed weekly.
