A second McCormick Place event has been canceled because of concerns about coronavirus.

Modern Business Experience, an event sponsored by Oracle and due in Chicago March 24-26, said certain programs will be online only. It was expected to draw 6,000 people.

Oracle said it made the decision “to help protect the health and safety of our customers, employees, partners, and everyone who helps host the event.”

A much larger show, the annual housewares convention, was canceled Monday.
