Due to the extraordinary nature of the current situation, Spain Startup is postponing the upcoming events South Summit Health & Wellbeing Valencia and South Summit Ciudad de Mexico, scheduled for April 28 and May 20 respectively. As organizers of both meetings, we follow the directives of governmental authorities and the WHO regarding prevention measures in the face of health emergencies due to COVID-19.
This is a measure of responsibility towards the ecosystem so that we can guarantee the safety and well-being of society. We would like to stress that under no circumstances we are talking about a cancellation; rather, both encounters are being postponed until further notice. When the outcome of this situation will be under control, we will communicate new dates for both.
We would also like to take this opportunity to clarify that this decision does not affect the celebration of South Summit 2020, which will take place from 6 to 8 October in La Nave in Madrid, where we hope to count on your presence.
Despite these measures of containment, from Spain Startup we would like to continue promoting the ecosystem of innovation. All the startups that are interested can register in our call for the South Summit 2020 Startup Competition. Registration will be available until May 31st through our website https://www.southsummit.co/en/register.
In addition, in view of these new challenges posed by the current situation, we want to take advantage of the opportunity to bring forward some projects we are working on and implement new actions as soon as possible thanks to the benefits of technology and the possibility of promoting digital connections.
We will inform you of all these new actions, as well as the new date for the two postponed encounters as soon as possible through our online channels.
