UPDATED 9/8: The annual IBC Show in Amsterdam, like nearly all conferences in 2020, was forced to go the virtual route because of COVID-19 with the IBC Showcase taking place Sept. 8-11. Part of the draw of IBC is hearing about the latest tech and products from new companies, but just because they aren’t happening in person, doesn’t mean companies aren’t eager to share their latest news.

Here is a rundown of IBC-related press conferences scheduled to take place before and during the IBC Virtual Showcase.
