  • Milestone’s primary focus and concern is for the health and well-being of customers, partners and employees.
  • In response to increasing concern for potential health risks from COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Milestone Systems has canceled the APAC/EMEA MIPS Conference scheduled for April 20-22 in Dubai.
  • MIPS is Milestone System’s largest annual event, attracting more than 1,500 attendees, globally.
Without the ability to effectively predict how events will transpire over the next two months, Milestone Systems is following the recommendations of relevant national authorities and international health organizations in determining this proactive health measure.
The well-being of employees, partners and other stakeholders always take priority at Milestone. The MIPS conference is important, sharing insights and innovations as well as exploring upcoming trends, new technologies and challenges, together with our partners. While it has been difficult, we firmly believe that we have made the most responsible decision.
