The company has expressed concerns about the predicted spikes in infection rates due to the Delta variant of Covid-19.
Ross Video has confirmed it will not be taking part in this year’s IBC Show, which runs from December 3 to 6.
Recently, Ross Video has also announced the company’s withdrawal from NAB Show 2021 in Las Vegas, scheduled to take place next month.
“Ross believes in the resumption of large international trade shows and events when the time is right, and our commitment to both NAB Show and the IBC exhibition is wholehearted. However, we remain deeply concerned about predicted spikes in infection rates from the Delta variant of Covid-19 towards the end of this year. With the international travel situation continuing to be uncertain and customer appetite for a physical event in December unclear at best, we do not feel able to ask employees, partners and customers to make the trip to Amsterdam. While regrettable, our decision to withdraw is consistent with our position that health and safety considerations must come first, and we appreciate this view being recognised by the event organisers,” said the company in a statement.
