In order to ensure the safety of employees of participating
companies and visitors, as well as prevent the spread of COVID-19,
KOBA 2021, which had originally been scheduled
to take place from the 11th to 13th of May at COEX,
has been cancelled to the following of 2022.
The Secretariat has been closely monitoring the guidelines
and measures prescribed by the Korean government
and Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Despite the release of the COVID-19 vaccine,
the number of new confirmed patients has averaged in the 600s for
the month of March, showing no clear sign of a decrease in spread.
In addition, there has been a growing concern about a relapse
of COVID-19 around Europe, and with the continued spread
of COVID-19 in countries such as the United States and Japan.
Thank you for all your support and interest in KOBA.
We kindly ask all employees of participating companies
and visitors for your understanding.
Given the delay of the show to the following of 2022,
the organizers, Korea E&EX and KOBETA, will give it their all
to make sure that the upcoming KOBA is a great success.
