Naomi Barton, Group Event Director of the iGB Affiliate global series of events has confirmed the postponement of iGBLive!, which is co-located with iGB Affiliate Amsterdam, to 22-25 September 2020 due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The events will still take place at the RAI Amsterdam, bringing together the affiliate and iGaming industries later this year in the Autumn season.
In a statement to the iGB gaming community via international media, Naomi said, “Gaming, just like all sectors of the global economy, has been hit incredibly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. As event organisers, we are also experiencing first-hand the impact of this awful virus on multiple levels alongside you, and we know how challenging this period is turning out to be for so many of our customers.
‘After careful consideration, planning and conversations with many stakeholders in our industry, we have made the decision to postpone iGB Live 2020 until September. I utterly recognise that this has so far proved to be an ever-increasing period of uncertainty, and in a way it’s never been more important for us to remain a community, listen to each other and come out of this unprecedented time with some form of plan for future success and business growth. I hope you’re all managing find to ways to cope, and I’m absolutely here to listen and help where I can’.
