SmarDTV Global cancels its participation at IBC 2021 exhibition in Amsterdam!

LA CIOTAT, November 18th, 2021 - Following the Dutch Government’s announcement regarding a three-week partial lockdown amid surging COVID-19 cases in the Netherlands, SmarDTV Global announces that the company will no longer be participating in IBC’s physical exhibition, scheduled for December 3-6 at the RAI, Amsterdam.

SmarDTV Global’s withdrawal from IBC 2021 results from partners and customers reluctance to commit to in-person events as well as record level of COVID-19 cases across Europe. SmarDTV Global is convinced that health and safety of its employees, partners and customers remain a top priority during this period of uncertainty.

We look forward to meeting you again at an in-person event as soon as the sanitary conditions allow us to do so.
