Microsoft has cancelled its Melbourne IoT in Action event, which was to take place on March 5, 2020, at the Sofitel Melbourne.

A message from Microsoft to event registrants states that, “With the health and safety of our customers, partners and broader community being our top priority, Microsoft has made the difficult decision to cancel the IoT in Action event taking place this Thursday, March 5, 2020 in Melbourne.“

The message went on to say that “Microsoft regrets any inconvenience this may cause. We will keep you updated about future IoT In Action events.”

Microsoft IoT in Action events have already taken place in several countries this year, including the US, Japan, Germany and France.
