Due to the ongoing health concerns and safety measures presented by November’s wave of COVID-19 infections, Aspectra B.V. has unfortunately decided to withdraw as an exhibitor from this year’s International Broadcasting Convention.
It is nothing in comparison to the pain and misery that COVID-19 has caused worldwide, but we are extremely disappointed that we will not be attending an event that has delivered great success and enjoyment for several years. This sentiment is shared by our partners at the brands we represent: Camgear, camRade and PAG.
Despite the fact that IBC management has insisted on participation, while other key exhibitors have already withdrawn, we have concluded that the measures they and the Dutch government have imposed make it impossible for us to contribute as an exhibitor to this major broadcast event.
At the moment, The Netherlands, the home country of Aspectra B.V., has a greater number of COVID-19 infections than other countries and the pressure on hospitals is increasing enormously. Although we discourage anyone to travel to Amsterdam at this time, we will keep a close eye on developments over the next three weeks and decide whether some of our team members will be present in Amsterdam as visitors of the show.
We will remain in close contact with our partners by means of digital interaction. All product launches planned for IBC will be postponed until January of next year. We are looking forward to participating in events and meeting you in-person once again at some point in the future.
With best regards,
The Aspectra team
