We are sad!
Because of the unpredictable situation, caused by the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel JAB20 in Lisbon.
This was not easy for us. We love JAB and spending time with so many people from the Joomla! community. JAB is always a highlight of the year for many of us and it gives so much back to the project.
However, the facts leading us to the cancellation are quite obvious for all to see:
- slowing down the spread of the virus is the key to preventing our health systems from being overwhelmed with new infections. An international conference with people from 30+ countries clearly doesn't support that important goal.
- the situation is getting worse every day (airlines cancelling flights, whole country regions being put under quarantine, companies disallowing travel etc).
So, with this in mind and the amount of uncertainty on the horizon, we see no other option than to cancel the event and start over with a new JAB in 2021.
All tickets and sponsorships will remain valid for that new JAB21.
We are investigating options to make a single track online conference, so stay tuned! We will give you more details as soon as we can.
We are really sorry and hope you understand.
