Q. What is the latest update around the COVID-19 situation?
A. Flash Memory Summit (FMS) is committed to the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff. We are closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and the responses of government, health officials and experts, and our partners in industry and academia.
FMS is actively tracking the status of the virus, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is home to almost 75% of our participants. FMS will follow the guidance of the CDC, WHO, and local officials to protect the health of everyone attending our event.
FMS respects and appreciates the decisive actions of leading tech companies, whose employees attend and help organize our event. We will respect these major companies’ special travel policies and all government directives that may still be in effect when FMS is held at the Santa Clara Convention Center on August 4-6, 2020, including preconference events on August 3rd.
We will update this message as relevant new information and guidance on COVID-19 develops.
