We got the offical word from CETRA today letting us know that Computex, one of the biggest computer trade shows, held in Taiwan in June, has been postponed due to buyers not wanting to travel to the small Asian island due to SARS. The event organisers are waiting to hear from buyers as to when they would best like the event postponed to, likely much later this year.

Additionally, ABIT today let us know that they have offically cancelled their booth and full Computex plans due to the strict quarantine measures imposed by the Taiwan government on visitors from Hong Kong, China, Canada and Singapore wishing to keep Taiwan clean of SARS.

Bummer!

Taipei, Taiwan, April 30th 2003-Owing to the strict quarantine measures imposed by the Taiwan government on visitors from Hong Kong, China, Canada and Singapore because of the threat of SARS, and the subsequent cancellation of most visitors to Computex, ABIT has decided not to have a booth at this year's show. Although Computex authorities are still deciding weather the show will be cancelled or postponed, ABIT has decided it is in the best interests of our partners and customers not to exhibit at this years show.
