The health and well-being of our employees, customers, partners, and communities are top priorities for SAP and we have continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak closely.
In full alignment with all SAP leadership, we have collectively made the decision out of an abundance of caution to cancel all SAP in-person events for the month of March 2020. This includes the Defense Supply Chain Summit in Washington, D.C., on March 26, 2020.
Your interest in the Defense Supply Chain Summit is highly appreciated! Please look for further communications as we finalize alternative plans for the Summit, as our goal is to reschedule it in the fall.
While we regret any inconvenience that our decision may cause, we are committed to limiting the spread of this virus and safeguarding the health of our communities.
