The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 has been cancelled in an effort to help control the spread of the novel coronavirus worldwide. Now, a prominent imaging hardware show, CP+ (or the Camera and Photo Imaging Show) 2020, has followed suit. It was to take place in Yokohama, Japan, and may have attracted about 70000 visitors.

The Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) has announced the cancellation of its headline event, CP+ 2020. Like the GSMA and its MWC 2020, it has done so out of regard for the health and safety of its would-be attendants, exhibitors and staff members, who would have been at increased risk of contracting the novel 2019 coronavirus as a result of mingling at the show.

The CIPA describes CP+ as the "world premiere" imaging device showcase, at which consumers have the opportunity to experience new and upcoming cameras hands-on. Therefore, the latest Olympus and Nikon DSLRs could have been on display at this conference.

CP+ 2020 had been scheduled to take place from February 27 to March 1, 2020 at the PACIFICO Yokohama convention center in Japan. The event would also have featured the conferral of CIPA awards, photography beginner's tutorials and exhibitions from relevant companies such as Western Digital and BenQ Japan.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
