Devoxx Belgium 2020 Canceled

Devoxx should be a place of joy, socialising and fun... not a place where people are afraid of getting infected. As a result we decided to cancel this years edition of Devoxx Belgium.

Over the last months it’s very likely that most people’s lives have been affected by the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Restrictions on large gatherings have been introduced in countries across the world. The Belgian Government and public health bodies have put in place social distancing measures, and many companies already have introduced travel restrictions on their employees for the remainder of the year.

With close to 3500 attendees from 45 different countries the travel and social distancing restrictions will have an impact on our ability to host a top-grade conference in November.  Therefore, we are cancelling Devoxx Belgium 2020.

The next Devoxx Belgium is scheduled November 8th – 12th 2021.

We’re not considering running a virtual Devoxx event. One of the key reasons for attending a conference is the chance to network with peers, and to meet new folks too – this is missing in a virtual conference environment.

We would like to thank all the sponsors who have already confirmed their availability for the 2020 event in November.

Stay safe and healthy, onwards to better times!
