IWCS and UL have made the difficult decision to cancel the UL and IWCS China 2020 Cable & Connectivity Symposium due to the widespread threat of the Corona virus.

The fourth annual UL and IWCS China 2020 regional Asian conference was to be held in Shanghai, China on March 24-26, 2020 at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of our friends and colleagues in China as they take every precaution to battle this serious Coronavirus crisis,” said IWCS CEO/Director David Kiddoo.

L.F. Lai, VP and General Manager of UL’s Wire and Cable division added, “We have made the difficult decision to cancel the UL and IWCS China 2020 Cable & Connectivity Symposium with great concern for the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and their families.”

As it is Asia's leading forum for information exchange in cable and connectivity, both organizations are committed to the future of the conference. Plans are already in process to hold the 2021 conference in Shanghai. As information becomes available, further announcements will be made on the symposium website www.ulandiwcschina.org.

Those who have already booked an itinerary for the 2020 conference should contact their airline directly regarding flight cancellation. Most airlines have already cancelled flights to China through April and are eliminating penalties for cancellation.
