Those registered for the event, which was originally set to be held in San Jose, California, from 22-26 March will get a full refund.
According to a company statement the decision to move the event online instead of at the San Jose Convention Centre “reflects Nvidia’s top priority – the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our customers".
Nvidia says company founder and CEO Jensen Huang will still deliver a keynote, and that it's working with speakers to begin publishing talks online. The online version of the event will still take place from 22-26 March.
Other tech events cancelled due to the coronavirus include Mobile World Congress, Facebook's F8 developer conference, and the Game Developers Conference.
