We love spending time with our customers and partners face-to-face at NEXT every year because it’s an amazing time to connect, collaborate and learn – together. But the COVID-19 crisis continues to have far-reaching impacts around the world. In light of the pandemic and our ongoing focus to ensure the wellbeing of our attendees and staff, we are canceling NEXT 2020. Although we are optimistic that this challenging time for our global community will pass, the safety of our customers, partners and employees remains paramount, and this means taking the steps necessary to help combat this deadly virus.
In lieu of the in-person event you know and love, we will hold smaller online events and briefings throughout the year to continue providing you the opportunity to learn, engage and gain inspiration. Of course, we will issue full refunds to those who have purchased tickets already as well as our committed sponsors.
As we look ahead to a brighter future, NEXT 2021 will take place Nov. 15-17, 2021 in Las Vegas as scheduled. We’ll aim to deliver the extraordinary event experience you’ve come to expect from Hitachi Vantara, bringing together the latest innovation in data infrastructure and management, analytics, and digital solutions.
We are most certainly adapting to new ways of connecting with our customers and partners during this time of uncertainty, and we will continue to provide you with industry-leading products, solutions, services and support. Meantime, we look forward to seeing you all again face to face at NEXT 2021!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. And of course, stay safe and take care.
