APEC News Release

APEC Update Regarding COVID-19

Sunday, Mar 08, 2020

APEC is fully committed to the global power electronics community and, at this posting, plans to proceed with APEC 2020, March 15-19 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

We understand that the situation is fluid, and due to emerging corporate travel bans and individual decisions regarding travel, we expect lower attendance. The Exhibition floorplan is being updated daily, as is the educational program, and changes or cancellations are reflected on the website as we become aware of them.

We will continue to monitor statements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in addition to government announcements concerning travel, and our decision-making will continue, guided by this information and the recommendation of our leadership and sponsoring organizations.
