GISEC, a major cybersecurity event held in Dubai, has been postponed due to concerns over coronavirus.

The event, which was due to take place from April 6 to April 8 at The World Trade Centre in Dubai, has been postponed until September 1 to September 3.

A statement on the event’s website said: “In light of the evolving global developments around the COVID-19 virus, Dubai World Trade Centre has been closely monitoring the situation, particularly as it pertains to our key stakeholders and participating delegations from around the world across all our upcoming shows.

“Whilst the UAE remains completely safe for travel, and has deployed the strictest medical and hygiene protocols, we fully recognise that for some specific shows, we have a high majority of key participants significant to the event’s programme that are unable to travel due to restrictions in their home countries.

“As such, we have been working closely to assure that our clients’ needs are most effectively addressed, and the delivery of strong international participation considered, in these extraordinary times.

“Our decision comes after much deliberation in consultation with the event’s main participants and industry stakeholders, who have strongly endorsed our prioritisation of the collective interests of both the global exhibitors and the key buyers from the region. With the event now rescheduled in September 2020, GISEC shall facilitate greater participation across our global communities, enabling more inclusive access for all.

“We look forward to welcoming you to GISEC this September 2020.”
