The organisers of G2E Asia and G2E Asia @ the Philippines have announced the postponement of the two industry events until 2021, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions cited ongoing travel restrictions as the main reason for the delay, with G2E Asia to be held next May between 25-27, at The Venetian Macao, from the already rescheduled December date.
G2E Asia @ the Philippines has been pushed back a year, and will now take place 10-11 November 2021, at the Manila Marriott Hotel.
In a statement, G2E Asia said: “We made this difficult decision to postpone our 2020 events as continued travel and commercial restrictions present too much uncertainty.
“By shifting our focus to 2021, we can ensure that we meet the high expectations for these events that we share with our valued attendees and exhibitors.
“G2E Asia, and its organisers the American Gaming Association and Reed Exhibitions, are grateful for your continued support and apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.”
The pandemic has wreaked havoc with scheduled industry events this year. The industry’s premier global event, Global Gaming Expo (G2E) was cancelled last month, with iGB Live and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam postponed until next year, while ICE London will now take place in April 2021.
