Peering Asia 4.0 is postponed for 1 year to Nov. 2021
Due to the various impacts of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone Peering Asia 4.0 for 1 year to Nov. 2021 and expect to hold the event at the originally planned location of Bangkok, Thailand.
The host team of Peering Asia 4.0 and Peering Asia Working Group have been discussing whether to hold this event in Nov. 2020 as originally planned or not. Many countries in APAC have gradually started to relax their restrictions, but it is still uncertain that in November most peering persons will be able to travel internationally and visit Bangkok. Therefore we have made the tough decision to postpone it to 2021.
We are starting the planning for Peering Asia 4.0 in Nov. 2021 and details will be shared on Peering Asia website and Peering Asia Facebook page. We are also considering whether to do a virtual event in Nov 2020 but a decision has not been made yet. Please stay tuned for more information.
