Shopify's Annual Developer Conference Canceled Amid Coronavirus Fears

It's the latest live event to be scrapped due to health concerns


Shopify has canceled its annual developer conference, Shopify Unite, three months ahead of schedule because of coronavirus, officially dubbed Covid-19 by the World Health Organization.

In a tweet posted today, Shopify said only the “in-person element” of the conference is canceled, though it did not offer further details about whether the event would go on digitally or in some other form.

“Over the last two years, more than a thousand partners from all over the world have gathered in Toronto to hear about our vision for the future of commerce,” said a Shopfiy spokesperson.
