To recall, the organisers via an earlier tweet stated that the plan for this year was to have a hybrid event, which would combine the onsite experience with a virtual one. At that time, the organisers also announced that another virtual event InnoVEX Virtual for startups would also be held parallel to COMPUTEX 2021. InnoVEX Virtual will still be held virtually.

The last on-ground COMPUTEX event was held back in 2019 before the pandemic started. COMPUTEX 2020  was originally supposed to be held in June, but got postponed to September, after which it was eventually cancelled citing safety concerns.
