The LoRaWan World Expo has been moved from its original March dates in Paris, France, to July 6-7, 2022, due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns.

A statement from the organisers said: “We’ve heard from you and understand that your preference is to keep the LoRaWan World Expo as an in-person event. The postponement enables us to provide that. We look forward to seeing you there.”

The statement went on to say that health and safety were of the utmost importance and that it would continue to adjust its plans and health protocols according to the latest Covid-19 health safety measures required and recommended by the World Health Organisation and French health authorities.

The event should bring together industry leaders from around the world, enterprises, device makers, system integrators, distributors, developers, providers, educational institutions, IoT alliances, influencers, and many more. It is due to be held at the Palais des Congrès de Paris.

Visitors will be able to network with the LoRaWan ecosystem, discover partnerships, create business opportunities during the exhibition, and learn how a company can advance its IoT to drive RoI.

The decision to delay the event follows other high-profile postponements in Europe. Embedded World, due to be held in Nuremberg in March, has been postponed till June 21 to 23. And Hannover Messe, originally scheduled for April, is now planned for May 30 to June 2.

At the time of writing, Mobile World Congress was still set to go ahead in Barcelona from February 28 to March 3.
