Fri, 14th Feb 2020 17:04

Feb 14 (Reuters) - Telit Communications Plc said on
Friday it would withdraw from exhibiting and participating at a
tech conference in Germany after a risk assessment following the
coronavirus outbreak.

"Our decision ... also removes the risk of exposing Telit
employees as the virus continues to spread globally and
international travel becomes increasingly more restrictive," the
AIM-listed technology company said in a statement http://pdf.reuters.com/htmlnews/htmlnews.asp?i=43059c3bf0e37541&u=urn:newsml:reuters.com:20200214:nPn3zmK13a.

after a mass exodus by exhibitors due to fears over the virus.

The Embedded World conference, in Nuremberg in southern
Germany, has more than 32,000 trade visitors and about 2,200
conference participants from 77 countries, its website said.

Franco-Italian chipmaker STMicroelectronics has
also said it would not attend the Embedded World event which
takes place later this month.
