Amazon Web Services (AWS) has scrapped its huge Las Vegas Re:Invent partner conference, replacing it with a three week virtual event.
Re:Invent usually sees 65,000 partners and develops decent on Sin City at the end of November for a five-day event, but the public cloud giant has now revealed plans for a virtual-only event.
AWS has confirmed that virtual attendance of the event will be free.
Re:Invent has been held in Las Vegas since its inauguration in 2012.
