ACA Connects has decided to postponed its annual Summit in Washington, DC, in light of concerns over the coronavirus. The event had been scheduled for March 17-19.

“It’s unfortunate the Summit will not happen in March after so much planning and the incredible interest of our members to again join us in Washington. We really thought we could make a go of it, even earlier this week,” ACA Connects pres/CEO Matthew Polka said. “But our priority is the health and safety of our ACA Connects members and all other attendees at the event. And as we gathered and evaluated more information from the CDC and other expert sources about the health effects of the coronavirus and the implications of its spread in the U.S. — including on travel and access to federal offices in Washington, D.C. — we knew it was the right decision for our attendees to change course and postpone the Summit.”

There is no new date, but ACA said it would announce one as soon as possible. Several other events have been canceled in recent weeks, including MipTV in Cannes. Fox News and Freewheel have both canceled their upfront presentations. The FCC on Wednesday announced measures to protect its staff, including suspending non-critical FCC domestic and international travel.
