The annual conference serving the gaming community won’t be held until this December
Before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, most gaming operators were getting ready to attend the biggest gaming conference in the world, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia at the Venetian Macao in Macau. Originally, the conference was scheduled for May 19-21, but, in light of current events, it was postponed to July 28-30. When the new date was announced, the response from attendees was not as good as expected, and some claimed that most companies won’t be ready by then. Therefore, the conference has been postponed one more time and, on this occasion, with plenty of time for preparation.
It was moved to the end of the year.
The organizations behind this conference are the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions. The AGA just posted on its website the new date for the conference to take place, which will be December 1-3 at the same venue. “The health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, and employees is always our highest priority. Based on our continued monitoring of the global health crisis, and in consultation with our customers and the Macao government, we will now host G2E Asia in December,” said AGA, explaining the decision.
Josephine Lee, CEO of Reed Exhibitions China, weighed on the rescheduling of the conference in a separate press release, stating, “The rapidly evolving situation makes it too difficult to host G2E Asia in a safe environment this summer. Based on our continued monitoring of the global health crisis, and in consultation with our customers and the Macau government, we have made the decision to postpone G2E Asia to December. The health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, and employees are paramount.”
